Ive a great fan of chrysanthemum tea, it is a great comfort drink for me. Normally i get the cheap stuff from asian supermarkets but those are not very good quality. This one is refreshing but definitely has flavour but without being overpowering. If you want to try a chrysanthemum tea this is a good one to start with.
