Description

Organic Chun Mee is a traditional green summer tea from China with a lightly roasted vegetal taste. When John Harney started in the tea trade over 30 years ago, Chun Mee was one of only two green tea offerings from China, along with Gunpowder. Our offerings have greatly expanded since then, yet many people still enjoy Chun Mee's familiar taste.

Ingredients

Green tea.

 Details: This is the green tea that many of us and our parents grew up with; many of us crave its roasted and assertive flavors. It is made from the tougher leaves that are fixed green and then fired for an extended period in a hot rotating oven.
 Dry Leaves: Grayish green leaves rolled into a semicircle. It is easy to see where the name "Chun Mee" comes from; it means "eyebrows."
 Liquor: Bright yellow.
 Aroma: Definitely charred vegetal aromas.
 Flavors: The flavor of leeks that have been left on the grill for a very long time.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied, from heavy roasting.
 Brewing Time: 2 to 3 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 175¬ļ
