Organic Chun Mee is the latest addition to our green tea collection. Chinese in origin Chun Mee is also known as ‘Precious Eyebrows Tea’. It’s an unfermented green tea, originally grown in Jiangxi province, but these days you can find it all over China. Chun Mee leaves are generally hand-rolled and pan-fried, which gives them their distinctive ‘eyebrow’ shape not to mention a mouth-blasting astringency. The Chun Mee flavour is a little sharper than other green teas: bright, toasty and slightly tangy, with a lingering sweetness to round out the profile. Chun Mee is high in antioxidants thought to help in anti-aging and cancer-fighting polyphenols. Being unfermented, those vitamins stay locked inside the leaf. It’s the perfect after-dinner palate cleanser.
Ingredients: Certified Organic Chun Mee Green Tea.
Serving Suggestion: Add 1-2 teaspoons and brew in 80-85°C water for 2 minutes. The tea should be a beautiful, clear yellow.
