Origin: Huangshan, Anhui, China

Ingredients: Jade colored buds and leaves, with a small curved “eyebrow” shape

Taste: An earthy, slightly bitter tea with a plum aftertaste

Brew: 1-2 teaspoons for 8oz of water. Brew at 194 ºF (90 ºC) for less than 30 seconds (exact time depends on your taste – a longer time will give the tea a stronger taste and color)

Health Benefits: Chun Mei, like all green teas, has high levels of antioxidants that reportedly reduce the incidence of cancer, promote good skin tone and help reduce the affects of aging. Also high in vitamin C, fluoride and calcium, they also promote healthy teeth and bones.
