Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Chun Mee Green Tea (also known as “Precious Eyebrow Tea”) is a type of Chinese Green Tea from Jiangxi Province.
Its nickname, as strange as it might seem, refers to the shape of its leaves, which, according to some, look like eyebrows.
We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, thereby ensuring quality and consistency with each and every cuppa brewed.
What is China Chun Mee Green Tea?
This is one of the most popular varieties of Green Tea found in China. It has become increasingly popular elsewhere, too, due in part to its extraordinary character and health benefits.
The leaves undergo only minimal oxidation, which means they retain the vast majority of their natural chemical structure. Those who consider themselves traditionalists will find plenty to love in our Chun Mee Green Tea.
Chun Mee Green Tea Taste
The fact that Chun Mee China Green Loose Leaf Tea is only slightly oxidised likewise influences the taste. You can expect bold, grassy flavours with every sip, followed by surprisingly smoky notes and a slightly astringent finish.
It is a complex cuppa from beginning to end, one that is bound to have you brewing up another in no time at all. But the question begs: Does it contain caffeine?
Chun Mee Green Tea Caffeine
All types of so-called “real” Tea (i.e. Green, White, Black and Oolong Tea) come from the same plant: Camellia sinensis. The difference between each one happens at the factory, whereby - and as mentioned previously - the leaves are oxidised to varying levels.
How to Brew Chun Mee Green Tea
1, Put Tea leaves into a Tea Infuser or Filter (both available here).
2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a mug or cup.
3, Boil fresh water and allow it to cool to temperatures between 80 and 90°C.
4, Infuse for 1 to 3 minutes. Any longer and you risk creating a bitter taste.
How to Serve: Best served without additions. However, some choose to add honey or lemon.
Chun Mee Green Tea Benefits
Would you believe that Chun Mee Green Tea health benefits extend to oral health? Proof exists in a 2010 Japanese study. It reported that participants who drank one or more cups of this infusion a day could prevent tooth decay and loss.
Doesn’t that put a smile on your face? However, that’s not all on offer here. It is also antimicrobial, meaning it can kill the microbes that cause bad breath.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia, Canada, measured the level of foul-smelling compounds in volunteers’ mouths after they had received Green Tea. It found that the extract outperformed mints and chewing gum at fighting halitosis. So, next time you have a date, why not brew up a cuppa? It won’t do all of the work, of course - but it might help!
