I tried plucking the petals out, and brewing them alone, and that definitely changed the flavor, but not how I would have expected. The grassy notes completely overwhelmed the pleasant floral taste from the other day, and the tea was extremely bitter. I’m assuming this is in fact because I plucked out the petals, and not because I brewed it a shorter length of time (the other day it ended up steeping for a couple of hours while I took a nap). I do not recommend separating the flowers when brewing this.

We know chrysanthemum tea, and have been drinking both white as well as less common varieties for 26 years. This tea may well be organic, which is nice, but the flavor is off, not just off, it’s terrible, medicinal, weird. I don’t know what’s wrong with it. We’ve used different water temperatures, more and fewer flowers— nothing helps. And this is new tea, packed in May of 2014 so it should be last fall’s crop. We ordered a giant bag, excited to find an organic chrysanthemum, and gave up— we just threw it away.
