Multiple uses of Huangju

China is the center of the world’s chrysanthemum industry, for its long history of cultivation and study. There are many varieties of the flower growing there today, among them “皇菊”, known simply as huangjuhua: “huang”=emperor, and “juhua”=chrysanthemum. This particular type is second to none when making tea, for its golden color and wonderful taste.

Used for drinking
Huangju has a rich variety of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, and is very rich in flavonol, so it has the potency to clear away overheating, improve acuity sight, and a few other health benefits.

Used as Ornamental plants
Chrysanthemum has been cultivated since ancient times as a decorative plant, widely used as potted flowers. The flowers can be kept in brilliant full bloom in clear water for as long as seven days without withering; this is the reason they are popularly used for aesthetic appreciation in upscale hotels, bars, and luxuriously furnished houses.

Used as natural food material
It is also a kind of natural food material; in China there are many traditional snacks made and named with Huangju, with a few familiar ones being Huangju wine and coffee, and pastry and cookies and other similar things.

However, chrysanthemums can cause side effects in some people, so be sure to consult your doctor if you unsure about consuming chrysanthemum tea.
