Starwest Botanicals Chunmee Green Tea Organic Description

  • Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis
  • Kosher Certified by Kosher Certification Services
  • Certified Organic by QAI
Chun Mee-cha (eyebrow tea) gets its name from the curve of the processed leaf.  It was thought, when viewing the beautifully shaped leaf, that it resembled that of a woman's finely formed eyebrow.  The pan-fried leaves produce a highly fragrant clear, yellow-greenish brew with a distinctive sweet flavor.

Bitter I love green tea, and have appreciated the best I can find, including some in pearl form purchased directly from an extraordinary shoppe in Shanghai. The inherent sweetness of a good cup of green is unparalleled, and such a cup can be brewed more than once on the same leaves without becoming bitter. I tried brewing this loose leaf tea three ways and finally gave up. Full of little twigs, bitter. 1st brew: large mug, 2Tbsp tea leaves, water just under boiling, about 5 minutes, (kind of forgot it for a few minutes)--so bitter, I had to spit it out. 2nd brew: One tsp tea leaves, large mug, water just under boiling, carefully timed for exactly two minutes, since it is difficult to overbrew a green tea to the point of bitter at only two minutes--not quite as bitter as my first brew; tastes a little like a mild black tea, the kind that comes wrapped in paper. 3rd brew: Carefully picked out as many twigs as I could find from 2 tsp or so of leaves (in case twigs contributed to the bitterness), double large mug, water just under boiling, timed for exactly two minutes--not too bad, drinkable, still has hints of bitterness, tastes more like black tea than green. I decided it just wasn't worth it, so I sent it back to Vitacost. January 6, 2012
Tastes great! This is the first time I have purchased bulk tea. I am very pleased. I was having gas issues with the regular green tea bags bought at the supermarket. Must be the processing because I am happy to state that that is no longer a problem! November 10, 2011
excellent green tea! I've been making a blend of this tea and hibiscus and have been drinking it iced. Beautiful color, wonderful taste. No more tea bags! August 6, 2011
Delicious! My sister and I decided to try this as we're quite keen on green tea, and this my favourite so far! Very smooth, and it's a great way to start the day. May 27, 2011
fresh, delicious looseleaf green tea This loose leaf green tea is the best! This is even better than the looseleaf green tea that I sometimes buy at the local Asian market. I highly recommend Starwest Bontanical's organic teas. December 22, 2010
