Peet's Green Peony tea-I like it!

I got an email from Peet's Tea & Coffee about this Green Peony tea and since it looked so pretty had to get my own.

It's a rare green tea hand-crafted in the shape of a flower. From the tin: "Green Peony gets its name from the unique appearance of the tea, which when infused resembles a blooming peony. This rare tea comes from a pair of villages in southern Anhui Province, China, and is completely hand-made. Plucking only the finest spring growth, the leaves are skillfully tied into a beautiful flower shape, and then pan-fired by hand. This is a "display tea," meant to be enjoyed not only for its taste, but for its appearance as well."

I like it, it's a pretty light green tea, and recommend it. A tin 1/8 lb (57g) is $18.75.
