Earthwise Beauty's chrysanthemum flower tea is a premium variety grown without the use of pesticides on a small family farm in the Hangzhou countryside in Zhejiang, China.
This is not a tea that Earthwise Beauty (EWB) orders through a middleman. Ava asked her husband's Chinese family (who live in Hangzhou, an area famous for the surrounding chrysanthemum and green tea farms) to find a great supplier for her and to request that EWB batches be grown without pesticides (which is rare among chrysanthemum tea farmers because bugs just love this plant). Ava's in-laws drive to the countryside shortly after each harvest, hand-pick their batch, and airmail it to the United States. EWB gets tea that is up to their standards and from a trusted source, and they know they are supporting a small family farm operation.
Chrysanthemum bud or flower tea is a fundamental folk medicine in China. In many homes, chrysanthemum tea is drunk daily for the ongoing maintenance of health, especially eye health, and many grandmothers will advise drinking chrysanthemum tea in the evening if a person feels wired or stressed, to help one unwind at the end of the day and to fall asleep more easily. Children who have a hard time settling down in preparation for bedtime or who have trouble falling asleep are also given weak chrysanthemum tea.
Chrysanthemum flowers have anti-inflammatory properties. Skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne in part stem from excess internal heat and inflammation (which appears as unnatural skin redness), so drinking chrysanthemum tea often improves the health and appearance of the skin and decreases symptoms such as itching.
Chrysanthemum tea has a long history of topical use by women in many Asian cultures, as a steam or splash, to reduce wrinkles and to achieve firm, supple skin.
The chrysanthemum teas available on the market are either tight buds or open flowers. Both types are very beneficial: the buds are strongly cooling and have a stronger flavor, but they take some time to get used to and sometimes are best to use under the guidance of an herbalist.
What EWB is offering at this time is a highly palatable and refreshing open-flower chrysanthemum tea that can be drunk as often as desired by adults and children. The open-flower tea is lightly cooling and relaxing, and the flavor of the tea is pleasantly mild, never bitter.
Take a few flowers or more and place inside a teapot, tea mug, or French press.
Brew using filtered, freshly boiled water.
Steep, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes, then strain.
Add honey or agave nectar if desired.
The same flowers may be brewed up to three times.
Whole yellow open Chrysanthemum morifolium flowers. Organic whenever available.
Gluten free. Caffeine free.
Origin - Hangzhou countryside, Zhejiang China.
Earthwise Beauty (EWB) teas are packaged in eco-friendly clear bags made from cellulose, which is a naturally abundant organic material, then in cardboard boxes for shipping. The cellulose used in the bags is derived from renewable wood pulp that is sustainably harvested from FSC-managed plantations. The bags are certified 100% compostable, meaning they can be composted both by individuals at home and in industrial composting facilities, and are marine degradable, which means that, unlike many other "biodegradable" products, these bags can break down not only in landfills, but also in marine environments.
And perhaps even more important than the materials EWB has chosen are the materials that they have opted not to use. Their teas are never packaged in individual tea bags or pouches, which produce an enormous quantity of waste that typically ends up in landfill sites. Most tea bags are made from wood pulp or vegetable fiber that is bleached using potentially toxic chemicals, and contain noncompostable metal staples, and many are lined with heat-resistant polypropylene plastic in order to prevent them from bursting open when in transit or in the cup. This means that even tea bags labeled “biodegradable” or “compostable” will, for the most part, not completely break down in a compost heap. EWB also avoids aluminum tea pouches, which are not compostable, and metal tea tins, which in many cases are not accepted for recycling.
