Unlike many other herbal teas, which use only the leaves of a plant in order to brew the beverage, chrysanthemum tea is made by infusing hot water with full flowers, which release a wide variety of antioxidants, organic compounds, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and soothing chemicals into the mixture, making for a delicious and highly nutritious drink!
