herb that accomplishes a similar result, though not quite as directly as

About Chrysanthemum Flower Quality
Chrysanthemum used as an herbal tea is a special kind of Chrysanthemum. The
flower buds are tiny and yellow, and the tea made from these flowers has a

one hundred miles outside of Nanjing that is renowned throughout China for its
extraordinary Chrysanthemum tea flowers. It is considered the supreme Di Tao
