Hailing from the Jiangxi province Chun Mee tea is one of the most popular green teas shipped around the world. In fact, most of the green tea people drink generally tends to be Chun Mee (albeit usually made up of low-quality fannings and dust).
Chun Mee has a pleasant chestnut aroma and the taste is complex, akin to sweetened chestnuts, artichoke, and apricot. The whole of it is a bit bitter, with a slightly sweet finish. Chun Mee is a quiet and easygoing tea leaf that loves to be bottled up and taken to yoga practice or the office.
