TeaFrog - Chun Mee

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.
