Chrysanthemum Iced Tea

chrysanthemum-iced-tea thai

Another of the common flower and herb iced teas you see at Jatujak market is this one, made from, yellow Chrysanthemum flowers. Unlike Bai Bua Bok, the green herb tea I made a few days ago, this one is purely a floral flavour, no herbiness about it, and the syrup gives it the same sweetness.
You can find the dried flowers needed to make this in China town in Bangkok and also there's a good selection of blended Chrysanthemum teas too, to be found there. I left a couple of the flowers in the top for the photograph, but I'd remove all of them when serving it.

2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Handfuls of Dried Chrysanthemum Flowers (about 50 flower-heads)
500ml Water

1. Boil the water
2. Add the flowers, simmer for 2 minutes.
3. Filter out the flower heads, add the sugar and stir to dissolve.
4. Leave to cool, serve over ice.
