Tea Review: Chun Mee Tea (Murchie's)

Chun Mee
Type:  Green
Origin:  China
Product Description:  Murchie's Chun Mee Tea - a smooth and subtle green tea known for its delicately rolled and shaped leaves, known as 'Precious Eyebrows' in China. Flavour notes of plum and florals.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves smell sweet and lightly spicy with a hint of smoke.

The golden infusion has an aroma that is sweetly fruity with notes of green vine and a hint of flowers.  The taste is light and sweet with a light fruity finish.

While the taste and aroma are very light during the first infusion, additional notes of green string beans and smoke came through with a second and third infusion.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
