Chunmee Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis)
Eyebrow teas are a group of green teas unique for the shape of the processed dry tea leaf. According to the Anhui Province Board, the direct ancestor of these teas is the Anhui green tea from the Ming Dynasty in the 1600's. Chun Mee tea is the most popular eyebrow variety. For over 400 years, it is the most favorite green tea choice for most of China. It is also called Zhen Mei, Chun Mei, Mee Cha, and Precious Eyebrows.
As the hand-processing for the eyebrow shape became perfected, this high=quality tea swept through all China to become the favorite drink. Full-bodied, but the slight astringency helps clear and clean the mouth. It is grown and processed throughout Anhui, Jiang Xi Province, Zhejiang Province, Yunnan Province, and other provinces throughout southeast China. The leaves are first steamed, then pan-fried to dry. During this time, each leaf is hand rolled, using movements that require great hand coordination, temperature coordination, timing, and patience.
There are white teas that are called Mei or eyebrow teas because of their shape. Sometimes you will see eyebrow teas labeled as Hyson or Young Hyson. This is a common name, like Bohea, that has been used for many teas, including the early pearl teas, later named gunpowder.
Health benefits of Chunmee include lowering cholesterol, aids in weight loss, reduces the risk of heart attacks, reduce the risk of hypertension, decreases cancer risks.
