Where To Buy: Tea Valley
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.
I have been wanting to try Tea Valley’s teas and recently I have been able to try a few of them! Including Tai Ju Wang Chrysanthemum. I have several thoughts about this tisane and here are a few of them…
This herbal tisane surprised me. It started off smelling like Chamomile and then switched gears into something much more pleasing to my nose! For that I am grateful. I’m not really into Chamomile. Perhaps Chrysanthemums are more my style?
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one…after all I am looking at the dry mix and thinking to myself…I’m going to drink flower buds!
If anything I was thinking it would taste more like bitter flowers like rose or marigold or something but that wasn’t the case…thankfully!
In the company’s product description it says “Honey-like sweetness” and that is completely right!
This is a pure delight! It’s a lovely-sweet – almost honey-like after taste but a bit more buttery or slippery than others I have thought to be honey-like. Maybe Buttery-Popcorn covered in honey…Not sure…but there is something more to the aftertaste than just honey-sweetness and sweet-floral notes and I just think it’s darling!
This Herbal is delicate and pretty and flavorful and surprising and I am so happy I was able to try it! I’m looking forward to my next cup!
