INTRODUCTION   Cornflower white is a common wildflower that has been cultivated as a garden flower for centuries. Originally a native of the Near East, cornflower now grows wild over much of Europe and the temperate regions of North America. The cornflower white gets its formal name from a minor goddess, Cyanus, and its genus name from a mythical Centaur (from the Greek Centaurea), whose name was Chiron. Chiron was a renowned herbalist in Greek mythology, and is credited with teaching mankind about the healing power of herbs. In many areas of the Europe, cornflowers are considered invasive weeds, despite the fact that they are also sought after garden flowers. They are annuals and biennials that often self sow and reseed themselves, making them difficult to eradicate. They got the name Bachelor's buttons in Victorian England because young women would wear them as a sign of availability.

More than ….

It has a very good flavour for a green tea. Light, yes…. But some real middle and and just a tiny bottom tea flavour … more than the usual notes -
The first large brew was shared with 4 others and rarely have I seen arms so eagerly reaching for the pot, good colour and scent.
