Drinking Green Chrysanthemum Buds Tea On A Warm Day.

As usual we started this particular day with our early morning walk at the recreational park in our area. 
Sometimes I feel like taking some pictures after the walking rounds.
I usually walk 4 rounds around the lake.
Most of us will walk but there are some who jogs.
When we are early, the walking path will not be so crowded. As you can see, the walking path is not wide and sometimes, we need to overtake those who are walking on a slower pace. Most are considerate and will make way for those who are faster.
I took a picture of these weeds found along the path.
These tiny flowers, seeds and leaves look something like those of the Cleome Spider plants growing in my garden.
This is the Cleome flower.
I harvested these Okra or ladies fingers from my garden. The easiest way is to blanch or steam them and drizzle with some garlic or onion oil. And add some oyster sauce or soy sauce to taste.
For lunch, I cut a big papaya for hubby and I. When I cut the papaya, I found this white thing inside the papaya. It looks like a tiny white papaya and it is hard.
I remembered these Green Chrysanthemum Buds which my friend gave me.
Took some of the buds and pour hot boiling water over it to make tea.
I let it steep in the glass teapot for a few minutes.
Just enough for 2 mugs. We drank it plain by itself without adding any sugar. Nice to drink on a warm day while visiting blogs.

Take care to live in me, and let me live in you.

For a branch can't produce fruit when severed from the vine.

Nor can you be fruitful apart from me.

  2. Chrysanthemum is good on warm day.

    Wow! That a very good harvest of okra. I sometime do like that too. Just blanch or boil and drizzle oil and oyster sauce on then.

  9. I've never tried this type of tea. I'm not a big tea drinker though. I do like green tea and that's about all I ever drink.

    Have a fabulous day, Nancy. ☺

  16. Nancy this was such an interesting post. I've never heard of making tea from Chrysanthemum Buds before. Does it have a tea flavor or is it bitter? - Enjoyed the pretty flowers. The ones you said looked like weeds remind me of Fuschia's. The flowers here were gorgeous. Great shots of the fences and man the last one with the Lady Slipper Vine flower and those colorful houses in the background was super cool looking.

  22. Nancy, there's nothing better than harvesting food from your own garden. I love okra and your way of cooking it is definitely worth a try...I'll keep that in mind, hopefully I'll remember it because it will be a good while before we are able to get some okra from our garden. Keep happy and healthy:)

    1. This pot came with a tea product I bought few years ago. The harvest from our garden is the best and taste better than store bought ones.

  24. Do you have quite a number of okra plants? When I had them before, each time there will only be 1 or 2 ready for harvest.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I have altogether 8 plants in 4 pots. 2 plants in 1 big pot. Each time I get to harvest about 4 or 6. Sometimes more, sometimes less.
