Chrysanthemum tea (pictured left) is one of the best beverages to keep you in good shape. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the flower can dispel excessive heat in the body, clear the eyes and help clean out harmful elements in the body.

Qing Yuan Tang, a chrysanthemum tea producer in Anhui province, has recently launched its new organic product.

Anhui is one of the top producers of chrysanthemum tea. Its history of chrysanthemum tea production dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279). Huangshan Mountain, located in southern Anhui, is known for chrysanthemum flowers with beautiful white blossoms and green pedicel. The dried blooms from this area are the most sought-after ingredients.

Qing Yuan Tang's new product is available in small boxes with 1 gram packs, convenient both as a gift and for personal consumption.
