The Chrysanthemum’s Greek name is fabulous, since Chrysanthemum means ‘golden flower’. But it’s not just its beauty that inspires us. It symbolises happiness and ‘eternal life’, and has been loved in Asia for centuries. It’s therefore a popular and important guest at festive occasions and ceremonies.  

The star of the show

The Chrysanthemum is the star of the show during our tea ceremony. Katja has experimented extensively with the golden flower, and has translated this into new exclusive recipes which were presented for the first time at a luxurious gathering.
