Tea Company: TeaFrog (website)
Ingredients: Green Tea
Vendor Suggested Preparation: 1 tsp/cup, 75 C/170 F, 2-3 minutes.
This green tea is also known as “precious eyebrows” due to its descriptive leaf shape. The rolled leaf is delicate, and boasts shades of dark jade green. A slightly sweet smell to the very small, uniform leaf size, indicative of good finishing and quality tea.
Brewed 3g (1tsp) tea in 6oz water @170F for 2 min in my for green Xing teapot. Bright yellow Spicy nose with sweet notes. Warm, soothing mouth feel, with honey accents, and a spicy dry aftertaste.
Wet leaf has a nice musky aroma, and the leaf opens to a consistent size and shape.
2nd Infusion 2:30 @ 175F. More general sweet nose, less honey in taste, but overall a more subtle and nuanced cup. Smoother, drier finish.
This is an excellent green tea – it leaves one refreshed, brightened, like good green tea should.
You can purchase the Chun Mee directly from the TeaFrog website.
