Default Dried Flower Consumption

I recently received a treat sampler pack from an ETSY vendor which contained dried hibiscus and chamomile. Does anyone know how much dried flowers a chin may consume and still not be considered detrimental to their digestive system?

Looking up similar flower combos on the Fuzzies Kingdom site (the owner has done research into proper herbivore diets), one that has hibiscus and chamomile in it along with other flowers and stuff, it says 1/2 teaspoon 3 times a week. Just dried hibiscus flowers one 3 time a week.

Thanks again Amethyst. My chins seem to enjoy most of the treats I have been giving them. They don't seem to like the dried peppermint in the sampler though. One of their all time favorite treats is raspberry leaves.
