What are the health benefits of Calming Chrysanthemum Tea?

Chinese people drink loose chrysanthemum tea to decrease body heat and drink during meals to help digest food. However, recent scientific studies find out health benefits of loose chrysanthemum tea far exceed these. Chrysanthemum tea is known to clear head colds and alleviate sinusitis pains. This is due to the vitamin C content of the tea. It is also antiviral in nature and thus a reliever of head congestion which are often viral infections. In addition, chrysanthemum tea naturally lacks caffeine which makes it resistant to caffeine-induced side effects such as anxiety, irritability and nervousness.

Furthermore, chrysanthemum tea is known for its stimulating properties and is thus used to refresh the brain and alert the senses. It energizes all the senses in a jiffy and also calms them down for better and clear perception. Finally, the benefits of drinking chrysanthemum tea includes soothing sore throats and helping to cure red/itchy eyes, dry, fluid-deficient eyes, and dark spots in the eye region.

Shennong (author 'chajing') about this tea: “protracted taking may disinhibit the blood and qi, make the body light, slow aging, and prolong life.”
