Product Description

Translated to precious eyebrows, this green tea is full flavoured with fruity tones and aftertaste.

 

To create the shape of the tea for a Chun Mee tea, leaves are hand plucked and processed immediately to stop the oxidation process by withering and then steaming to maintain a green leaf. Leaves are then fired and hand rolled to create the signature eyebrow shape.

 

Chun Mee has been a staple of tea drinking in China, dating back to the Ming Dynasty, and is one of the most popular to date.
