From Seven Cups

Mei Cha (eyebrow tea) is the most popular type of green tea in China because of its rich taste. Most Mei Cha is machine cut to create even shapes for grading but often leads to a bitter heavy flavor. Our Yin Gou Mei Cha is picked during early spring without machine cutting thus the processed tea is longer than normal and resemble fish hooks. This hand picked tea results in a robust flavor without bitterness. Once brewed noticed the beautiful jade tea color and fresh aroma.

This is a wonderful everyday green tea. The leaves are handpicked, and they have retained their wholeness until they reach the cup. It is not every day that we find a tea this cheap, and still be able to appreciate mostly whole leaves at the bottom of the gaiwan. The aroma is complex, the flavor is nutty and vegetal, and you can get at least five steepings out of this cheap cheap tea! I highly recommend this to any Chinese tea drinker.
