Gunpowder green tea organic
Gunpowder green tea, from Zheijang China, is among the most popular teas in the world and it resembles its namesake. This Chinese loose-leaf tea, with the most unusual name, is very tightly rolled and is of the highest grade available. This Gunpowder tea will delight you as you watch the firmly rolled pellets bloom into flowery tea petals. It promises to give your cup of tea a deep, rich, exceptional flavor and a refreshing clean taste.
Gunpowder is a most unique green tea gets its name because the tightly rolled green leaves resemble the powder used in cannons on 18th century British ships. The tight roll helps Gunpowder remain fresher, longer than other teas. When fully steeped, the tender whole leaves unfurl revealing this deep, rich flavor with a medium body.
To brew an exceptional cup of Gunpowder tea, we suggest you use one to two pellets in a pot of water at 158-176 degrees F. Let the tea unfurl for 3 minutes before transferring to a teacup. This tea is wonderfully enticing alone however; you can also flavor it with a fresh sprig of mint, as the Moroccan's do, or a slice of lemon. Sugar also brings out a touch of sweetness and will only add to the character of this gourmet tea.
