This organic Chun Mei green tea is one of the most popular kinds of green teas. It comes from the same plant as black tea (Camellia sinensis), but is less processed so it undergoes less oxidation. 

The leaf blends well with many other herbs, flowers and spices when brewed. Liquid infusions are used in cosmetic preparations for hair and skin. In addition to this variety we also carry many other green teas.

green tea

Green tea comes from Camillia sinensis, a small Asian shrub that also produces the leaves from which black, white, oolong and pu-erh teas are made. While black tea is still the most popular variety of tea in the west, green tea has greatly increased in popularity in recent years. In fact, green tea is not only enjoyed as a host beverage but also as a goof, diet supplement and cosmetic ingredient.

Various regions of China specialize in cultivating the tea plant, where tea has great social and economic significance. This green tea is specific to the Jiangxi province of Southeastern China where it is known as Chun Mee, which translates to “precious eyebrows.” Chun Mee yields a fruity rather than sweet infusion, with notes of plum and apricot in the perfume. With a pale golden green color and soft taste, this tea produces a pleasant and alluring cup!
