Chrysanthemum Blossom Tisane

gukhwa cha (국화차) = chrysanthemum blossom tisane

Caffeine Free, like all tisanes, the Chrysanthemum Blossom steeps a bright golden infusion. The color of the liquor reflects its sunny flavor profile – crisp and clear with a delicate hint of mint.

These small, golden blossoms are found in a small, southern region of South Korea. As with most flowers, chrysanthemum has some level of toxicity and contains allergens. To get rid of these impurities (and make it safe to eat/drink), the flowers are cleansed and dried. (Hankook Tea’s Chrysanthemum Blossom Tisane is cleansed with a mix of jujube, licorice roots, salt, ginger and ginseng.)

These little golden blossoms are commonly used by Asian herbalists as a cure for headache and dizziness. An infusion of chrysanthemum is perfect for people who have strained and fatigued eyes. Also, a perfect home remedy for coughs and slight fevers.*

Enjoy the beauty of Spring at any time as you watch the blossoms bloom in your cup.
