A delicious organic green tea with a smooth vegetal flavor. The deep golden liquor has hints of smoke and bay leaf with a dry lingering finish. A great value tea that is perfect for breakfast or a refreshing cold brew.

Chun Mee (春眉) is the highest grade of Mei cha or young hyson green tea. The name literally translates to “precious eyebrow”. This tea’s history can be traced back to around 150 years ago. Its shape is created by hand rolling the pan-fired leaf. The curve of the finished leaf resembles a finely formed eyebrow, which is how it got its name. In Chinese, the eyebrow is 眉 Mei. It was written as Mee in English at that time. The Chinese green tea is produced in Spring, 春 Chun. So the word ‘Chunmee’ came into being. This lighter Chinese green is possibly the first loose leaf tea style and is still one of the most common varieties.
