Harvest when the flower is only partially bloomed, the Tia Ju Wang is one of the most excellent chrysanthemum teas available. Made with only the finest Hangzhou white chrysanthemum flowers, the tea’s fresh and sweet aroma never fails to elicit an “Mmmm” reaction. When brewed, the chrysanthemum flowers produce a light-bodied tea that is vibrant yellow in color. The tea has a honey-like sweetness and a heaven-like fragrance. This tea finishes with a delicious aftertaste.
Graceful and pure, you will find this tea incredibly refreshing. Superior all around, the Hangzhou Tai Ju Wang is a truly a king among all chrysanthemum teas.
This tisane wanted to start smelling like Chamomile and then it switched gears into something much more pleasing to my nose! YAY! I only say this because usually I’m not much of a fan of Chamomile.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one…after all I am looking at the dry mix and bye-golly…I’m going to drink flower buds! So…maybe I was thinking it was going to taste flower…maybe more like bitter flowers like rose or marigold or something but that wasn’t the case…
Honey-like sweetness is right! This tisane is a pure delight! It’s A lovely-sweet and almost honey-like after taste but more buttery, or slippery than others I have thought to be honey-like? Perhaps more like a Buttery-Popcorn covered in honey! Regardless – there is something more to the aftertaste than just honey-sweetness and sweet-floral notes and I just think it’s darling!
