Chrysanthemum pu-erh is pu-erh tea that has been blended with chrysanthemum flowers. Unlike other Chinese floral teas like Jasmine which involve repeated scenting followed by removal of the flowers, chrysanthemum pu-erh is usually made by mixing actual flowers in with the tea leaves. This can be done at the time of brewing, but pre-blended teas mixing pu-erh with chrysanthemum flowers are also available.

This style of tea is popular in regions speaking cantonese, and often, the Cantonese word for pu-erh, bo nay, is used. Some companies market chrysanthemum pu-erh tea as dim sum bo nay tea, referring to how this tea is often served with dim sum, a way of serving food common in Cantonese restaurants.

Chrysanthemum pu-erh is distinct from chrysanthemum tea, a tea made solely out of chrysanthemum flowers.
