About Chrysanthemum Tea:
Chrysanthemums have been cultivated in China as a flowering herb since the 15th century BC. Chrysanthemum tea is made from the flower tops and is enjoyed in many parts of Asia. The flowers make a beautiful infusion, floating on the water, and are especially popular at our Cosmic Reflections teahouse in the Lan Su Chinese Garden.
Ingredients: Chrysanthemum Flowers.
