Chun Mee how to brew? Here are several tips for you to get the most from your Chun Mee Green Tea:
Use 0.5 - 1 teaspoon per cup, infuser, filter or teapot. Switch the kettle off, before water boils. Add the hot, but not boiling, water and infuse for 3 minutes. It is especially important to make sure that the temperature of the water is not too hot, and the steeping time is not too long. Even high quality Chun mee tea can become acidic and astringent to the point of being undrinkable if it is brewed with water that is too hot.

Chun mee can be a good tea to choose as a base for blending with mint, to prepare Moroccan mint tea or a similar blend. Leaves can be used repeatedly until the flavour of the tea is exhausted

Using hot water to pre-warm your cup and utensils for brewing not only clears away any dirt or flavors from previous teas brewed, but it also keeps the tea at an ideal temperature.
Washing or rinsing your tea leaves before brewing can remove any impurities so that you can enjoy the pure authentic flavor of the Chun Mee tea.
