kteaslogoAccording to the KTeas website, Chun Mee translates to "Precious Eyebrows". The Chun Mee green tea leaves have long and slightly curly or arched shapes, which I guess could be loosely interpreted to resemble eyebrows. KTeas describes this tea as having a robust chestnut aroma, but I personally sensed more of a clean, springy fragrance. When brewed, the once-thin leaves open up to reveal large, whole-leaf size. The brewed tea is an interesting orangy-yellow, slightly opaque color. The flavor is best characterized as being an equal representation of nutty, grassy, and grainy flavors. I found the tea to be much more enjoyable at lukewarm temperatures, when the flavor really "popped", then at warmer temperatures (e.g. the sub-boiling temperature usually advised for green tea). The tea was also tasty and refreshing when it was iced. The leaves held up to a second infusion quite nicely. The second infusion's flavor varied only slightly from that of the first infusion in that the grainy notes were perhaps a little more apparent. After drinking several cups of this tea, I can say that this is a very decent green tea. While I wouldn't classify this as a downright amazing tea, it does certainly satisfy as an easy-drinking and smooth everyday green tea. KTeas has this tea marked down to a price of $5 for 100 grams, making this an excellent bargain for anyone looking to acquire a no-frills green tea.
