Golden Chrysanthemum Flowers
A native of China, this small and fragrant flower is one of the "Four Gentlemen" (Sìjūnzǐ 四君子) of traditional Chinese culture, together with plum blossoms, orchids, and bamboo. The chrysanthemum is a reserved and secluded flower, but it can bloom even in the severest autumn winds, gently opening its petals and releasing its sweet fragrance.
The flowers can be infused in a glass gaiwan or gongdaobei, admiring the elegant golden petals dancing in the water and painting the liquor in various shades of yellow. Their fragrance reminds us of Chamomile, with a complex note of cinnamon, and a lingering citrusy aroma of oranges.
Drink it in our Chrysanthemum glass cups, for the perfect brewing experience.

Very potent healing power. Especially for autumn, a cup of Chrysanthemum tea warms up the body and moistens the dry feeling (潤燥). Delightful experience.
Dear Yadi, it is nice to imagine the warm hues of this golden flower that sustains your autumn; thanks for your kind words, we are delighted to read them.
Una infusione chiara e carezzevole di fiori di campo, camomilla, e sottofondo di agrumi dolci il cui retrogusto accompagna a lungo il palato. Ideale per il risveglio durante una giornata di nebbia.
