Story of Gong Mei:

Gongmei, which translates to "tribute eyebrow," refers to the shape of the leaves, resembling an eyebrow. It is made using both buds and larger leaves of the tea plant. Gongmei tea has a history dating back to the Qing Dynasty when it was considered a tribute tea for the emperor. Though it contains not many buds as White Peony, its delicate flavour profile and subtle sweetness make it a popular choice among white tea enthusiasts.

Nature's Sweetness

The Gong Mei white tea has a beautiful, natural sweetness that I haven't found in other herbal teas.

Fresh New Experience

My first white tea purchase from the Hobart Tea Shop, Gong Mei's fresh and delicate flavor makes me feel like I'm laying on a grass field on a sunny day. It's so refreshing!
