Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™
The flower tea that calms, cools and clears
Chrysanthemum Flower (Chrysanthemum morifolium) is consumed as a tea to nourish the Yin and as an herb to remove wind and occasional heat (irritation) from various areas of the body in normal, healthy individuals. For thousands of years it has been used in Asia. Today, it continues to be one of the most commonly consumed herbs in Asia, consumed by millions of people every day as a delicious, satisfying health beverage. It is China’s quintessential summer tea because of its cooling effect on the body, especially the face and head. Tens of millions of cups are consumed every day during the hot months of summer.
Chrysanthemum flower tea can serve a very useful purpose in a tonic program. Since it is a normal human process, especially as we grow older, for “heat” (false yang) to rise in the body, an herb that can modulate this rising heat can be very important to maintaining normal healthy functions and maintaining a youthful appearance. Chrysanthemum is among the most important of the herbs used for this purpose (Gynostemma being the other great tonic herb that accomplishes a similar result, though not quite as directly as Chrysanthemum). Chrysanthemum, especially when combined with Gynostemma, can provide considerable balancing effect for those people who like to consume warm tonic herbs (such as Ginseng, Astragalus and Deer Antler) and feel some rising heat, especially in the hot months. Thus, Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™ is a smart product to have on hand by those on full tonic programs.
According to traditional Chinese herbal theory, Chrysanthemum’s functions include nourishing Yin, dispersing ascending false Yang, dispersing wind and minor, occasional irritation (especially from the face, head and upper body), and calming and cooling the liver in normal healthy individuals.
This delicious flower is most famous for its ability to support vision and eye health. It is widely used to brighten the eyes, improve vision and to clear minor, occasional irritation from the eyes. It helps to support the natural healthy moisture and coolness of the eyes. In Asia, it is used for minor, occasional eye strain, soreness and redness in normal healthy individuals. It is very widely used by those who experience mild, occasional dry eyes or redness due to irritation by dust, wind and outside temperature increases by normal healthy individuals, especially in the summer time.
Chrysanthemum is also used in Asia to clear the mind. Consuming a relaxing cup of Chrysanthemum tea at bedtime is believed to improve one’s memory, especially when memory is overtaxed by mild, occasional overwork or stress, or due to too much thinking, reading, worry and/or computer work. Consumed during the day or in the evening, it helps relieve stress and tension in normal healthy individuals.
Chrysanthemum Flower is renowned for its benefits to the skin, as it supports healthy moisture content and helps prevent wrinkling due to dryness, wind and heat. It is one of the Orient’s premier beauty herbs.
Suggested Use: 1 teaspoon of Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™ powder per cup of water (hot or cold). It is traditional, though optional, to add several Goji berries to this tea. Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™ may also be added to Spring Dragon Longevity Tea, which has Gynostemma as its main ingredient. This makes a formidable Yin tonifying tea that will provide an amazing overall cooling effect, especially useful in the summertime.
About Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee Quality
The Chrysanthemum used as an herbal tea is a special kind of Chrysanthemum. The flower buds are tiny and yellow, and the tea made from these flowers has a distinctive flavor. Like all major herbs, many varieties of Chrysanthemum flower are available, some being of very high quality and some not so much. “High quality” refers to the subtle richness of the flavor, as well as to its effectiveness as an herb in terms of benefiting the Yin, in cooling the head, eyes and face, and for its effect on the skin and mind. Chrysanthemum flower has a massive connoisseur following throughout Asia (tens of millions of people), much like tea (Camellia sinensis), so the source and variety of the flowers really matter.
Ron and Yanlin Teeguarden consider Chrysanthemum flower to be of such health value, that they have made numerous special trips to various growing sites in China to determine the best Chrysanthemum and to obtain these flowers for its Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™. There is a Chrysanthemum-growing region about one hundred miles outside of Nanjing that is renowned throughout China for its extraordinary Chrysanthemum tea flowers. It is considered the supreme Di Tao source of Chrysanthemum flowers in China. Of course, this is where Dragon Herbs obtains our annual harvest of sweet Chrysanthemum flowers to produce Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee™.
Dragon Herbs Chrysanthemum Flower eeTee Uses FITT Extraction
Now for the first time, a cutting edge extraction technology is available for commercial extraction of botanicals. Dragon Herbs’ new Fingerprint Identical Transfer Technology™ (FITT™) is a patented green extraction technology of the 21st century. It is the most advanced commercial extraction technology in the world. FITT™ is a proprietary process that utilizes mechanical forces to break the raw materials down to micron level. The materials are “shaken” loose at tremendous speed, resulting in instantaneous extraction of both water-soluble and alcohol-soluble components from the raw material into the solvent. The entire process is performed at a low to moderate temperature that never exceeds 40°C (104° F), thus eliminating the drawbacks of a heated extraction.
The Six Characteristics Of FITT™Technology... Truly "Raw Extracts"
Many people now understand that the raw, natural constituents of plants and other edible substances have special value in our bodies, but only if they are bio-available. Eating a raw herb is often futile because many herbs are indigestible by humans unless cooked, fermented or extracted. FITT™ accomplishes something very important for those who appreciate the value of raw foods and herbs. With the entire process’s temperature controlled under 104° F, FITT™ extracts are really “raw” extracts. FITT™ extracts the raw constituents without damaging them in any way. In fact, far more constituents are released than are released by conventional extraction.
FITT™ technology captures the original phyto-chemical profile (the fingerprint) of a botanical and transfers it safely and almost identically into the final extract, perfectly preserving the aroma, color and taste of the freshly collected botanical. The result is an instant granule that tastes and smells just like its original plant. Traditionally, a truly full spectrum release of the water and alcohol soluble components would have required a water extraction plus an alcohol extraction. With FITT, the water extraction alone is close to full spectrum. When a botanical is boiled in water or extracted in alcohol or other solvent, the constituents of the botanical are released from the fiber that contains them and are dissolved into the liquid medium. The resulting “tea,” or paste is highly assimilable. Also, it is much easier to consume because the material has been “reduced” to a much smaller volume and yet the potency is higher. Without the extraction, the body would have to do a digestive “extraction” of the materials bound to the fiber, adding much stress to our GI tract. Since we do not have the digestive tract of a ruminate, this “extraction” method is not very effective, nor is it efficient.
- FITT™ powder extracts dissolve completely, making a clear beverage in seconds, even at room temperature.
- You can now truly enjoy premium tonic elixirs with ease! Just add, shake or stir and drink. It is that easy.
- No mess, no clean up, and nothing to throw away. eeTee™ takes all the hassle out of making a first class cup or bottle of tonic elixir.
