Happiness from a cup and love from a plate

A lovely cup of tea

Dress your tea table according to the seasons, which adds even more warm feelings to your ritual. Most important, however, is that you serve a good cup of tea. You can use a pretty cup with a gold rim, or a minimalist glass one. Did you know that the name of the chrysanthemum comes from Greek: chrys (gold) and anthemon (flower)? Thus, chrysanthemum literally means golden flower. The petals have a spicy flavour and are ideal for use in sweet dishes.

*Dried edible chrysanthemums can most easily be obtained in September from the Chinese supermarket. Note: check with the store that the chrysanthemums are edible.
