From Shanti Tea

Lightly vegetal and astringent, well-balanced flavor with a smoky aftertaste.

This Precious Eyebrow tea originates from Anhui Province, China. Also known as Chunmee, it is the most popular green tea in China, consumed by millions every day. Our Precious Eyebrow is the highest grade of ‘eyebrow’ tea available. The eyebrow-shaped leaves yield a pleasantly aromatic and refreshing yellow infusion with a slight astringency and a provocative plum-like aftertaste.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some Precious Eyebrow.

This is a very pleasant Chunmee. It has a nice buttery tone to it, and it is not as grassy as some of the Chunmee teas I’ve tasted in the past … more like a light spinach-y undertone. The finish is sweet with a nutty, slightly smoky aftertaste. Very nice.

Thank you LiberTEAS for sending me this tea!

Nothing too elaborate to report on the smell of this dry. Smells exactly how it looks, which could be a good thing.

First steep I did one minute : A nice light color that I enjoyed. It smells and tastes light also, but not light in a bad way. Light in a it’s getting late and I’m enjoying a nice light cup of tea to round out the day. Strange because others described this as “musky” or “strong”. It’s probably because I only steeped it for one minute, but sometimes I actually appreciate a nice light cup. You can taste some of the more subtle aspects of the tea this way. I love the vegetal quality of this tea. It’s very refreshing.

Second steep I did two minutes : Wow. This tastes like an entirely different tea! It’s much stronger this time. No lightness to this cup. It’s slightly “sharp” if that makes any sense, but not to the point that this cup isn’t enjoyable. I’m getting more of the smoky aftertaste with this cup than the last one, but I think I enjoyed the first steep better. This cup certainly isn’t bad, and I won’t have any trouble finishing it, but the first cup was so much more delicate and I appreciated that tonight.

One of the more pleasing Chumee’s or Precious Eyebrow’s I have tried so far! This isn’t as musky as most I have tried in the past! I really like this!

I am in love with this tea’s name. It makes me smile.

It was a perfectly solid take-it-to work green tea. It reminded me of gunpowder green in flavor, only a lighter version.

It had a strong flavour and a bite to it, reminding me of Jasmine tea. It is organic and fair trade, like the rest of the Shanti teas. It was as nice cold as hot.
