Chrysanthemum tea is believed to be first cultivated in China in the 15th century BC. As Chrysanthemum is a symbol of nobility and integrity, the tea became popular among poets and artists.
The various health benefits of Chrysanthemum tea can be found in the Chinese herbology book, “Compendium of Materia Medica.” Chrysanthemum is rich in vitamins and antioxidants. It is a natural coolant and helps in lowering the temperature of the body when suffering from fever or even heat stroke. Also, it is good for the detoxification of the liver, improving eyesight, lowering cholesterol levels and treating respiratory issues.
