* Required Fields
Taste much better than the gongju but much much less than the gongju. Regardless, I still prefer taiju taste. Very pretty to see. Chewed on some petals after finish infusing. Yummy.
There are notes of daisy, wild flowers, pollen, lettuce, white pepper, straw, and gentle almost creamy sweetness. It smells like autumn and nostalgia, a very happy smell for me. The taste and mouthfeel is fantastic! Like a chrysanthemum flower should be, the texture of the liquid is thick and slippery, coating my mouth in a nice cooling sensation, like the world's mildest Biotene mouth spray. Honestly the texture reminds me of that as well, but with no mint to be found...which is completely fine with me! Some chrysanthemum flowers are very sweet, others are very pungent and medicinal, this one is way on the sweet spectrum. None of the sharp more medicinal qualities are really present, just the wonderfully sweet nectar of fresh golden chrysanthemum. With notes of honey, pollen, wildflowers, daisies, straw, and a lingering aftertaste of sugar.
first of all, it looks absolutely beautiful. brewed with 90C to 95C with a bit of rock sugar. after opening the gaiwan lid, I noticed a really relaxing aroma. This tea really helps to soothe you down from stress.
Very surprised that ONE flower alone indeed does the trick for a whole 260ml of water. I brewed two flowers in 600ml of water with a few pieces of rock sugar for 10mins and the outcome was a slightly sweet and very distinctive yet delicate chrysanthemum taste. Wonderful as an after meal drink.
