Chrysanthemum is one of the top ten famous flowers in China, one of the four gentlemen of flowers (plum, orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum), and one of the four major cut flowers (chrysanthemum, rose, carnation, gladiolus) in the world, with the largest output. Because chrysanthemums have the character of being cold and proud of snow, there comes Tao Yuanming's famous saying "picking chrysanthemums under the eastern hedge, leisurely sees Nanshan". In ancient myths and legends, chrysanthemum is also endowed with auspicious and longevity meanings. It was first seen in <Book of Rites>, and <Shen Nong's Materia Medica> listed chrysanthemum as the top grade, and it is a commonly used Chinese herbal medicine today.

Chrysanthemum can be used as a way to make tea. First, boil the water, put 5 chrysanthemums in a cup, brew with hot water, cover and simmer for 5 minutes before drinking. It can be brewed 3-5 times repeatedly, and the boiling water should be continued until 1/3 of the tea soup is left, so that the concentration of the tea soup before and after is more uniform and the aftertaste can be maintained.
It can be paired with hawthorn to help reduce fat and blood pressure; or wolfberry and red dates to help clear the liver and improve eyesight, suitable for students and white-collar workers who often stay up late.
