Lion City Meadery
This seasonal mead is greatly inspired by how asian grandmothers brew chrysanthemum tea. They would boil large quantities of dried chrysanthemum blooms in water to extract the full flavour of the flowers, and then sweeten the flower tea while still boiling, with rock sugar.
The same approach has been adapted with this very special mead. High grade dried chrysanthemum flowers that were specifically graded for use in tea were sourced for this seasonal. The chrysanthemums were steeped and boiled in water, substituted rock sugar with a proprietary blend of honey and fermented the mixture into mead.
What we have is a clear golden-hued mead with a richly textured chrysanthemum profile. Sweet with a slightly bitter and dry finish that is unmistakably nostalgic for folks that grew up drinking homemade chrysanthemum tea.
Finished uncarbonated and at 7% ABV, this mead is perfect for all-day drinking. Best served chilled in a glass without ice.
Being a seasonal mead, this is a one-off brew in limited quantity and only available while stocks last.
