The Chrysanthemum's Greek name is as beautiful as the flower itself, as Chrysanthemum means golden flower. But it is not only its beauty that inspires us. The flower symbolises happiness and eternal life and has been loved in Asia for centuries. There, the chrysanthemum is a popular and important guest during holidays and ceremonies.  


A good high tea stands or falls on a good cuppa. And what could be finer this autumn than sultry aromas drifting from the cup into your nose? Success is guaranteed with this recipe for delicious chrysanthemum tea.


What could be better than spoiling yourself with a delicious broth on drizzly, cold autumn days? This chrysanthemum bouillon is both filling and warming. An added bonus is that this soup contains a generous portion of vitamins!


Who doesn't like cake? This cheesecake, with the tasty addition of chrysanthemums as a finishing touch, is the perfect sweet treat during your high tea. The cheesecake does very well as a dessert, or as a treat with coffee.
