Meaning ‘precious eyebrows’ due to the gently arched leaf shape, Chunmee is a mellow and easy-drinking green tea with sweet, subtly roasted flavours and a delicate plum-like aftertaste.
Chun Mee (珍眉) green tea has a dusty appearance and is excellent during the day or night, with a nice well-rounded flavor and aftertaste.
It was originally produced only in the Chinese Jiangxi province, but is nowadays also grown elsewhere.
According to the Tea Board of Anhui Province, the direct ancestor of Chun Mee tea is the Anhui green tea from the Ming Dynasty in the 1600’s.
As the hand-processing for the eyebrow shape became perfected, this high quality tea swept through all China and became one of the favorite drink.
It’s still loved by many people in China to this day.
Heat freshly drawn water to about 80 degrees, infuse leaves for three minutes and drink without milk. It’s important not to pour freshly boiled water directly onto the tea leaves, as you can burn the tea which will create a strong bitter aftertaste.
