Japanese herbs and spices (Shungiku)

I just got the Japanese herb kit for my aerogarden. One of the herbs is shungiku ( chrysanthemum ) .

Any clue what I might use this in ??

A local Thai restaurant serves a wonderfully delicious chrysanthemum tea that they charge about $4.50 per large glass. It's worth it!

In Korea it (ssukgat) is used in Fish or Pork stews. It has a nice smell along with flavor. It is usually added at the end.
