Chrysanthemum Blossoms

Small delicate dried flowers (and petals) steep to a translucent yellow color. The blossoms offer a light aroma with an herbaceous flavor.  The taste lingers, somewhat like menthol, but subtler.  Chrysanthemum blossoms are used in Chinese medicine to calm the nerves, clear the eyes, and tonify the liver.  (Yields approx. 34 servings per 2 oz.)
