The origin of tribute chrysanthemum

One year, a terrible draught hit Huangshan, numerous people got sick with red eyes and painful heads and felt miserable. At that time a businessman doing business outside for years return to his hometown of Anhui Province and brought back chrysanthemum from Zhejiang Province, He asked them to use it to make tea and drink it. Few days later, people's eyes were cured,and thus chrysanthemum was widely cultivated. For easier storage and longer usage, many farmers specially dried the flowers. The flower cured of eye diseases during the reign of Emperor Guangxu, Qing dynasty. Therefore Anhui chrysanthemum became well-known and was respectfully called "tribute chrysanthemum".

Better finish drinking the tea in 1-2 months

Don't store Chrysanthemum for a long time. You'd better finish drinking it within one or two months. After a long time storage, the flower will breed worms, and the taste and smell will also be affected.

Happy Find
This tea is fragrant and has a pleasant, mild flavor. It wasn't easy to find Chrysanthemum tea, I've been searching for awhile. I first experienced it in a Thai restaurant in San Diego- they wouldn't sell it to me, tried other restaurant to, and none of them had it, so I'm thankful to Chinese tea Culture for this simple pleasure.
