Description
 
Named for the lucky flower of wealth it resembles, this truly unique and beautiful tea is carefully hand-made by experienced tea artisans who select and arrange the choicest large tea buds and tie them with a silk thread. The resulting intricate little buds "blossom" when covered with hot water and produce a sweet-smelling, pale gold infusion with a deliciously smooth and floral, full-bodied flavor which lasts through many infusions.

PREPARATION:
Green Peony is a unique and beautiful tea which you will want to share with your friends and serve in a special way. For each person we suggest using either a gaiwan (the traditional Chinese covered steeping cup) or a large western-style porcelain teacup. Place a single "peony" bud in each cup and cover with water heated to 75-80°C (167-176°F) and allow to infuse for 1-2 minutes. The tea may be decanted and served in additional tasting cups or drunk right from the gaiwan or teacup. Green Peony is a robust tea which will last through many subsequent infusions by gradually increasing steeping time and water temperature.
