Green Sea Anemone
In China, this tea is called Lu Mudan or Green Peony. We call it Green Sea Anemone because that’s just what it looks like after the steeping. On a small farm in the China Anhuy Province, individual leaves are hand-tied into rosettes by the skillful hands of tea makers. Enjoy this tea for its beautiful appearance as well as its wonderful taste. It has a striking sweetness with a wonderful lingering aftertaste. Brew it in a clear glass cup or wine glass and enjoy it throughout a meal by simply refilling with hot water as needed.
This tea is also great for on-the-road. It will not become bitter after extended brewing time and even airplane water will be hot enough for a satisfying infusion.
Recommendations: Use 1 rosette per 16 ounces; heat fresh, cold water until steaming (170° F). Rosette can remain in pot for visual appeal.
