Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™
The flower tea that calms, cools and clears
Chrysanthemum Flower (Chrysanthemum morifolium) is consumed as a tea to nourish the Yin
and as an herb to remove wind and occasional heat (irritation) from various
areas of the body in normal, healthy individuals. For thousands of years it has
been used in Asia. Today, it continues to be one of the most commonly consumed
herbs in Asia, consumed by millions of people every day as a delicious,
satisfying health beverage. It is China’s quintessential summer tea because of
its cooling effect on the body, especially the face and head. Tens of millions
of cups are consumed every day during the hot months of summer.
Chrysanthemum flower tea can serve a very useful
purpose in a tonic program. Since it is a normal human process, especially as
we grow older, for “heat” (false yang) to rise in the body, an herb that can
modulate this rising heat can be very important to maintaining normal healthy
functions and maintaining a youthful appearance. Chrysanthemum is among the
most important of the herbs used for this purpose (Gynostemma being the other
great tonic herb that accomplishes a similar result, though not quite as
directly as Chrysanthemum). Chrysanthemum, especially when combined with
Gynostemma, can provide considerable balancing effect for those people who like
to consume warm tonic herbs (such as Ginseng, Astragalus and Deer Antler) and
feel some rising heat, especially in the hot months. Thus, Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™ is a smart product to have on hand by
those on full tonic programs.
According to traditional Chinese herbal
theory, Chrysanthemum’s functions include nourishing Yin, dispersing ascending false
Yang, dispersing wind and minor, occasional irritation (especially from the
face, head and upper body), and calming and cooling the liver in normal healthy
This delicious flower is most famous for its
ability to support vision and eye health. It is widely used to brighten the
eyes, improve vision and to clear minor, occasional irritation from the eyes. It
helps to support the natural healthy moisture and coolness of the eyes. In
Asia, it is used for minor, occasional eye strain, soreness and redness in
normal healthy individuals. It is very widely used by those who experience mild,
occasional dry eyes or redness due to irritation by dust, wind and outside
temperature increases by normal healthy individuals, especially in the summer
Chrysanthemum is also used in Asia to clear
the mind. Consuming a relaxing cup of Chrysanthemum tea at bedtime is believed
to improve one’s memory, especially when memory is overtaxed by mild,
occasional overwork or stress, or due to too much thinking, reading, worry and/or
computer work. Consumed during the day or in the evening, it helps relieve
stress and tension in normal healthy individuals.
Chrysanthemum Flower is renowned for its
benefits to the skin, as it supports healthy moisture content and helps prevent
wrinkling due to dryness, wind and heat. It is one of the Orient’s premier
About Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee Quality
The 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 distinctive flavor. Like all major herbs, many
varieties of Chrysanthemum flower are available, some being of very high
quality and some not so much. “High quality” refers to the subtle richness of
the flavor, as well as to its effectiveness as an herb in terms of benefiting
the Yin, in cooling the head, eyes and face, and for its effect on the skin and
mind. Chrysanthemum flower has a massive connoisseur following throughout Asia
(tens of millions of people), much like tea (Camellia sinensis), so the source and variety of the flowers really
Ron and Yanlin Teeguarden consider
Chrysanthemum flower to be of such health value, that they have made numerous
special trips to various growing sites in China to determine the best Chrysanthemum
and to obtain these flowers for its Chrysanthemum
Flower eeTee™. There is a Chrysanthemum-growing region about one hundred
miles outside of Nanjing that is renowned throughout China for its
extraordinary Chrysanthemum tea flowers. It is considered the supreme Di Tao
source of Chrysanthemum flowers in China. Of course, this is where Dragon Herbs
obtains our annual harvest of sweet Chrysanthemum flowers to produce Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™.
Use: 1 teaspoon of Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™ powder per 2-8 oz. of water (hot or cold). It is
traditional, though optional, to add several Goji berries to this tea. Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™ may also be
added to Spring Dragon Longevity Tea,
which has Gynostemma as its main ingredient. This makes a formidable Yin
tonifying tea that will provide an amazing overall cooling effect, especially
useful in the summertime.
What is “eeTee™”
The acronym eeTee™ stands for “easy, economical, effective, ecological Tea.”
An eeTee™ is a cutting edge, proprietary instant extract
that preserves the natural freshness and potency of herbs and teas, and
dissolves instantly in water of any temperature. It is 100% natural. The core technology
is known as Fingerprint Identical
Transfer Technology™ (FITT™).
Essentially, the herb (in this case, Chrysanthemum flower) is extracted in room
temperature water (no heating) by an array of physical forces. As a result, the
finished tea extract (called eeTee™)
has the IDENTICAL phytochemical profile as the RAW herb. Because the extract is
never heated above 104ºF, the eeTee™ is a genuine raw food. Chrysanthemum
eeTee™ is the ONLY raw, completely full spectrum, natural Chrysanthemum
powdered extract in the world. The phytochemical fingerprint is virtually
identical to that of the fresh raw flower. Consuming Chrysanthemum Flower
eeTee™ is like eating the raw Chrysanthemum flowers straight off the bush in
the field, but a lot more convenient. This is herbalism at its finest.
