Mulberry Chrysanthemum Tea ~ 桑叶菊花茶


To combat the haze I made this Mulberry Chrysanthemum tea as it's caffeine free and Chrysanthemum is a natural coolant which helps to lower the temperature in our body, lower cholesterol, brings relief to sore throats, redness, itichiness and dryness in the eyes.  Chrysanthemum flowers come in many colours, white, yellow, purple and while the disc florets are yellow, the main types used are those with white or yellow petals.  Mulberry leaves on the other hand contain more  calcium than green tea thus help in strengthening bone mass.  Mulberry leaves are also caffeine free and are also a great source of vitamins A,B and C, minerals and amino acids.  Wolfberries, native to China helps in improving eyesight, general well-being and strengthening the immune system.

    1. I grew the Mulberry in a pot in my garden. It'll grow into a big tree if planted on the ground.
