drank Chun Mee by Harney & Sons
10 tasting notes

I keep meaning to write more reviews than I do. I have a lot I’d like to write about. But it seems difficult to find time to get on my computer. I tried making a review on my phone once and just couldn’t make it work.

This brings me to a tea I’ve mean to review for a while. Chun mee, sold by Harney and Sons. I find this to have a very ‘classic’ green tea flavor, at least to what I thought green tea tasted like when I first started drinking it many years ago. I still really like that flavor, even though I now know that green tea can really vary by where it’s grown. It brews a very beautiful dark yellow and has a very pleasant ‘leaf’ and slightly smokey smell. The taste would reflect this as well.

Even though it’s not an expensive tea, it’s one I would still recommend drinking slowly, preferably with a friend. It also goes very well with Chinese food(many green teas I think are best alone, but this one doesn’t seem overwhelmed by other flavors as easily).

I started drinking green tea around 15 years ago with a random package of Salada green tea. I would think of this as a logical next step for people that started with that, though I think this is much better. Good to drink every day, but maybe not special occasions.
