Winter-Proofing Chrysanthemum Tea

Winter-Proofing Chrysanthemum Tea

Chrysanthemum is a lovely daily brew, but because it is slightly cooling, I like to add warming herbs when I make it in winter.

In addition to goji, which I always brew into it for taste and to benefit my eyesight, my go-to winter addition is a little ginger (chopped fresh, or dried for convenience).

To strengthen the center-warming function of the ginger, and limit the potentially venting quality of the chrysanthemum, a small amount of raw/local honey is also nice – and it has the side benefit of moistening sinuses dried by indoor heating.
