Serves 4.

Herbal Iced Teas

Chrysanthemum is popular as a summertime tea ingredient in southern China, but the flower grows in Canada’s climate, too. In fact, most mums prefer longer nights, so we can enjoy them into the autumn. If you grow honeysuckle, choose a non-invasive variety.

Dried blossoms or teas of both—believed to have a cooling effect on the body—can be found at traditional Chinese medicine suppliers and some health food stores.

Blossoms only

While the blossom of the honeysuckle flower and its sweet nectar are edible, most honeysuckle varieties have poisonous berries.
