This tea is light and fluffy with smooth, slightly sweet, nutty flavor.
Shu Mee or Shou Mei (Longevity Eyebrow or Long Noble Life Eyebrow) comes from the god of longevity ‘Shou Xing’ and ‘Mei’ meaning eyebrows.
Shu Mee originates in the Fujian province of China but also grows in the Guangxi province. After harvesting, Shu Mee undergoes a natural process of withering in the sun with almost no oxidation. Because of this, it has higher levels of antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins with less caffeine than its black and green tea counterparts.*
This tea is light and fluffy with gorgeous tones of bright green and tan reminiscent of freshly fallen leaves from a tree. The taste is very mellow with a slightly nutty flavor.
Directions: 1-2 tsp tea per 8-12 oz in 175-185 F degree water. Steep 2-3 minutes.
