Chunmee green tea produces a highly fragrant, yellow-greenish brew with a distinctive, sweet flavor, and is known for its plum-like sweetness and smoothness.

Ingredients: Organic Green Tea*. *Fair Trade Certified™ by Fair Trade USA.

Steeping Instructions: use one teaspoon of leaves with for every 8 fl oz of 70-80ºC/ 158-176ºF. water; steep for ~3 minutes*. (Recommendation: Steep for 1 minutes (mild flavor) and taste. If desired continue steeping.)

About the tea: The shape of the leaves is reminiscent of an eyebrow, hence the word 'mee' or 'mei'; means eyebrow. Chunmee translated is 'Precious Eyebrow'. The leaves are hand-rolled in a traditional fashion and pan-fired requiring great skill since the final tea is considered a work of art. Patience, great hand coordination, temperature control and timing achieve a fine jade color leaf and mellow yellowish brew. Contains caffeine.

Per 2 oz tea, you get approximately 25-30 cups of tea.

*Tastes are different. The steeping instructions are recommendations, but we suggest experimenting with different steeping temperatures to find your preferred tea taste. Depending on the water quality boiling the water may be advisable. You can let the water cool to the desired temperature.
