Snow Chrysanthemum tea is a rare and highly sought after high altitude flower tea from Kunlun Mountain in Gansu province. The tea is picked and sun-dried once a year (late summer), then hand-sorted into various grades. We offer only the highest grade available and these are the buds.
This is a lovely tea with strong sweet, stimulating, and aromatic flavor, that can be brewed alone or in blends with other teas. It's a great tea to drink after dinner and in the evenings as it contains no caffeine.
