特级 婺源 金丝皇菊#1457
Wuyuan Royal Dried Chrysanthemum#1457
This special chrysanthemum flower is produced in Wuyuan City, Jiangxi Province of China. It is a tribute tea, that was offered to high officials and visiting dignitaries by the emperor of the Qing Dynasty, so it is also called Imperial Chrysanthemum or Emperor Chrysanthemum. The taste and health value of Wuyuan Huangju are extremely high. Emperor Chrysanthemum is fragrantly sweet and delicious. It can relieve summer heat [heat stroke], promote body fluids, remove wind nervous irritations, moisturize the throat, nourishes eyesight, and reduce hangover.
When drinking Emperor Chrysanthemum, it is best to use transparent glass. Put one or two flowers in each cup, and then brew in boiling water for 1~2 minutes. When it is brewed for half a minute, the color of the water will gradually turn yellowish, transparent, and clear, emitting a faint chrysanthemum fragrance. Every time you drink, don't drink it all at once, leave one-third cup of tea, add new hot water, steep it for a while, and then drink it again. When drinking chrysanthemum, you can put a few rock candy crystals in the teacup to make it sweeter. But many people prefer the flowers’ naturally sweet flavor. Hot chrysanthemum drinks in winter and ice drinks in summer are popular. People with weak digestion and the elderly should enjoy warm drinks instead of ice.
- Be sure to use pure water to brew. Tap water may cause the flowers and leaves to turn green.
- Since chrysanthemums are tender during the blooming period, they are not sprayed with pesticides.
- Please rinse the flowers with boiling water before brewing. Some petals will fall off during transportation, which is a normal phenomenon.
