For green tea lovers and those wanting to try green tea, this buttery, mild Chinese tea is the lightest green we carry at ArtfulTea. The Chinese name Chun Mee means "precious eyebrow," a perfect description for the long, curved and slightly dusty-looking leaves of this delicate tea.
Chinese green teas are more mellow than their Japanese counterparts known for their rich, grassy flavor. Our organic Chun Mee takes that mellow taste a step further with its pale yellow liquor and subtly sweet flavor that can be described as a bridge between white tea and more full bodied green teas such as Dragon Well.
As with many teas, the loose leaves of Chun Mee can be brewed at least twice, with each infusion offering a more nuanced experience of this beautifully light, low caffeine tea. Another reason to love Chun Mee is the rich store of beneficial antioxidants, amino acids and vitamins in each cup.
