In China, this tea is very popular and its tradition is very old. This tea has influenced the European tea lover‘s idea of green tea. Chun Mee means “valuable brow”, for the leaf reminds of the eyebrow form of classical Chinese beauties. The tea has a very typical taste with a tangy aroma accompanied by a slight sweetness. It is grown in south eastern China near the river Yangtze. If you find this tea too strong, you may pour away the first brew and enjoy the second, milder brew afterwards (see the second row in the brewing guide).
