Chrysanthemum Tea

Tea drinking is a ritual in Chinese. I love their undying passion for different types of tea. When I first saw them drinking green tea, chrysanthemum tea I have frowned at them on many occassions! Chrysanthemum!!! aila..it is used for prayers and these drink them with hot water...???!!! so was my thoughts and expressions.. Ask me now, I can recommend ten others to have this mildly sweet and fragrant chrysanthemum tea which stores some good benefits for you in that percolated hot water.

Here is my teapot which I constantly fill with chrysanthemum, green tea leaves and rose buds and enjoy my hot cup of tea.

@Mansi,
We get some good chrysanthemum in Singapore. Do you want some? I could not drink green tea in the begining, chrysanthemum tea was just fine with me. Now I can drink all three green tea, chrysanthemum and rose bud tea.

@ Arundathi,
Even my 5 yr old loves to drink it. He loves tea to plain water, so is his love towards it :)

@Jayashree,
hehehe..even I got a shock in a similar way. These are white chrysanthemums which are grown in particular season and dried. You may find them in Chinese stores. Do try them.
