The green peony tea is carefully hand made by experienced tea artisans who select and arrange the best large tea buds and tie them with a silk thread into the shape of a peony flower. The leaves from this tea are grown deep in the mountains. Partially air dried and then delicately roasted, this tea is smooth and refreshing. It is recommended not to use boiling water for this delicate tea. Steep the tea in near boiling temperature for 2-3 minutes. This tea produces a sweet-smelling, pale gold liquid with a deliciously smooth, floral taste.
