San Qi Hua is the flower of Tian Qi (aka Panax Notoginseng). Our San Qi Flowers are grown in the Wenshan region of Yunnan at an altitude of 1900 meters.
The aroma of dried San Qi Flower is quite pleasant and reminds us of cacao powder. The San Qi Flower brewed as tea is quite pleasant, with a balance of bitter, sweet and Ginseng spiciness. It goes well with other teas like Ripe Pu-erh, Raw Pu-erh and Black tea as well. Drinking it alone is the best way as a herbal tea in the evenings or whenever!
*In some rare cases San Qi Flower can cause mild allergic reactions when consumed. If you experience any unusual allergic reactions after consuming San Qi Flower please discontinue use immediately.
**San Qi Flower should not be consumed by pregnant or breastfeeding mothers.
