Snow Chrysanthemums are flowers consumed for hundreds of years in Xinjiang. However, it wasn't until 2011 when this high altitude flower became a mainstream herbal drink in China. In that year prices surged over 3000 USD per KG due to high demand, while supply fell short.

Snow Chrysanthemum Tea Origin

This flower, also known as 'Snow Daisy', is produced in the alpine region of the Kunlun Mountains in Xinjiang. This flower tea mainly grows at high altitudes on the cliffs and only blooms once a year in August. Snow chrysanthemum tea is rare because it only has a very short blooming season and a very small yield. It's the only wild Chrysanthemum in the world that grows at high altitudes. This makes this tea really hard to pick, because farmers have to go up the mountains during the harvest season. Thus, it's pricey but definitely worth all the health benefits that you can enjoy while sipping a cup of this flower.
