Show Description

A strong green tea with a slight roasted quality.

Extra Info:

Legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size and style. They are rolled into very small tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favored because of this characteristic. Chinese exporters recommend gunpowder for iced tea flavored with lemon and sugar.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 2 minutes.

Ingredients:

Green tea,

Origin:

Zhejiang, China

Really enjoying this tea, amazing and substantial flavour compared to what you can typically buy as tea bag based green tea. The leaves do indeed come as stated, in little curled up pellets, sealed in a foil lined bag with a air tight strip. This is not what I got when buying a product labelled Gunpowder green tea when shopping here in the UK, that came nowhere close to NMTeaCo. Very impressed guys!

I also like the fact that I can get more cups out of gunpowder that I can with "loose leaf" teas.
