More About Chun Mee
Chun Mee is a light, mild Chinese green tea with a characteristic buttery, plum-like flavor. It has a slightly astringent taste and a clean finish. Like all green teas, Chun Mee is made from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, and is pan-fired soon after harvesting in order to halt oxidation and preserve its bright green color. In Chinese, Chun Mee means "precious eyebrow," poetically referring to the distinctive long, curved leaves of this delicate tea.
Chun Mee is a popular tea among green tea lovers and newcomers alike, with a mellow flavor and a small amount of caffeine. In general, Chinese green teas are lighter than their Japanese counterparts, which are known for their rich, grassy flavor. Our organic Chun Mee brews up into a pale yellow liquor, and has a subtly sweet flavor, with a fuller body than white teas but lighter body than most other green teas.
