Update:02 Jun 2022

  Chunmee tea is China green tea, produced in Jinzhai County, Lu'an City, Anhui Province. Jinzhai has produced famous teas since ancient times, including Lu'an Guapian, Jinzhai Cuimei, Baoer Wuyun, King Kong Yulu, etc. chunmee tea is made from a single bud. Authentic Cuimei tea has no petioles. Its shape is elongated, green, bright, and oily. When brewed in water, the buds stand upright, the color is yellow-green, and the aroma is fragrant. Take a sip, it tastes fresh and sweet.


  The buds of Cuimei tea are tender and fresh, and the brewing water temperature should not be too high. The high temperature will burn the buds and make the soup cloudy while destroying the nutrients in the tea leaves. Usually, Cuimei tea is boiled at 80 degrees, and the amount of tea in the head is 5 ~ 10g, so the brewed Cuimei tea can fully demonstrate its quality characteristics.


  chunmee tea is bitter and slightly cold, suitable for drinking in summer. In the sultry summer, the energy consumption of the human body is high, and it is easy to feel physically and mentally exhausted and dizzy. Drinking Cuimei can just take its bitterness and coldness, to achieve the effect of clearing heat and relieving summer heat, producing fluid and quenching thirst. If you drink Jinzhai Cuimei in cold winter, it will easily lead to a cold stomach and decreased appetite.


  Depending on the time of day, it is best to drink Cui Mei at least an hour after meals. If consumed immediately before or after meals, the rich tannic acid in Chunmee Tea will weaken gastrointestinal motility and increase the residence time of food residues in the gastrointestinal tract, which will lead to dry stools and even constipation in severe cases.
