Mu Dan Tea Peony Hand Tied Chinese Healthy Speciality Healthy Green Tea


  • This famous Chinese Green Tea is from the south of the province of Anhui.
  • Freshly plucked leaf tips are made up into a rosette, by hand, then pressed flat and dried.
  • Only the bud and the finest leaves are used in this speciality process.
  • Mu Dan means Peony, a flower, which in Chinese stands for wealth and success.
  • Due to this, Mu Dan is very popular in China and is referred to as the Queen of Flowers.
  • These needle shaped green and silver leaves used in the making of the wonderful ‘Peony’ or ‘Rose’ arrangements, are tied together with silk in the form of a rosette, which then slowly opens up in warm water.
  • Mu Dan is a very light tea and needs to be treated gently, brew with hot water at a temperature of 75 to 80 °c and leave to infuse for 1 to 3 minutes. Re-infuse as often as you can before the flavour disappears.
  • For best results a glass tea pot or a sturdy Brandy-type glass show this gradually unfolding display to the best effect.
  • You will receive two of these hand tied Tea Peonies for £5.00 this will allow you to make 2 pots of tea, serving three or four cups. This tea can be re-infused at least three times making each cup of tea costing less than twenty-one pence per cup, a small price to pay to share this experience with a small group of friends.
