Wild chrysanthemum tea
I gather wild chrysanthemum flowers
in my backyard.
There's an abundance of these.
It is better to gather
before being in full bloom,
but I am late a bit.
Blanching flowers in boiling saltwater.
Salt aids color to be vivid.
For strong scent,
only wash and dry.
Dry it in the shade.
I use dehydrator for being impatient.
This tea is known to heal
a headache and dizziness.
This tea should be kept hermetically sealed.
Its taste similars to chamomile tea.
We are reaching the height of autumn.
