My officemate, Yinnon, brought some chrysanthemum tea to work. Isn’t it wild? (For more information, see the Wikipedia article on chrysanthemum tea.) I love watching the dried bud unfold and open up. Here’s a photo of the dried bud, before it has been steeped. Normally Yinnon makes it in the tea infuser that you see behind the bud, but this time he steeped it in a glass cup so that I could photograph it.
