Chrysanthemum tea bulk (powder/tea leaves/bag)

Anyone know where to get bulk Chrysanthemum tea?

Not the stuff pre made in bottles
Looking to make at home (usually its cheaper that way). Either instant tea mix, tea bags or tea leaves
I was at t&t but I can't read chinese and it was taking way too long. I saw one bag with a bunch of packets but it was only like 20 inside and they only made 500ml each time
Looking for a huge bag of the powder

Most Asian stores will have it in some from.
Teabags are common in the tea section.
I once saw glass bottle filled with the dried flowers at Bluesky.
Might have been at least $10 but can't say size or servings.
chrysanthemum tea is on the cheaper side compared to other teas like Ginkgo.
Also depends on the brand you buy.
As a poster above already said, maybe Chinese medicine shops may have larger quantities or more potent stuff.
Maybe check places like this as well.

Yes a bit more expensive, but more ‘stronger’ Chrysanthemum taste.. forgot the explanation the lady told me though

Go to any Chinese Supermarket and they will have bags or containers of the dried flower and then steep it yourself.

Simple and much more cost efficient!

The dried flower is normally in the tea section of the supermarkets.
Stress is caused by NOT fishing enough.

I bought some dried flower just to try today

so I tried 20g per 1L hot water
I added about 3 packets of sweet n low

was alright, im sure it's better for you, but the packets are cheaper and I just go for taste (not really the health benefits)

150g is $9 at t&t, so thats about 8L of tea
the packets are $4 for 18, and make 700-800ml (750ml average) each which is 13.5L. Almost double for half the price

I never add sugar. It gets rid of the natural taste.
