Precious Eyebrow ( Chun Mee )
This Precious Eyebrow tea originates from Anhui Province in China. Also known as Chunmee, it is the most popular green tea in China, consumed by millions every day. Our Precious Eyebrow is the highest grade of "eyebrow' tea available. The eyebrow-shaped leaves yield a pleasantly aromatic and refreshing yellow infusion with a slight astringency and a provocative plum-like aftertaste.

I drink too much green tea and my tastes buds must be clogged! This tea has very little flavor but when you do taste it, it is a heavier taste. Overall nothing special.

A lovely, lightly citrus green tea, a perfect relaxing ‘any-time’ brew. It’s delightful to watch the slender precious eyebrow-shaped leaves uncurl into a pale golden green tea.
