Description

Chun Mee tea (meaning "beautiful eyebrow" ) is a delicate refreshing tea from the beautiful Yellow Mountain region of China. This Chinese green tea is refreshing, full-bodied, but the slight astringency helps clear and clean the mouth. While you may occasionally find one with smoky or toasty notes, the hallmark of this tea is the provocative plum-like aftertaste. Preparation: Use up to one tablespoon of tea per cup. Make sure you use freshly heated water rather than previously boiled water to avoid a flat taste. The temperature should be just before the boil or 180F/80C. Steep for three to four minutes. You don't have to change the leaves, just add more hot water for up to three infusions. As usual, no milk or sugar is used with this tea
