About China Green Gunpowder Tea

Green Gunpowder tea is probably the most popular green tea from Zheijang, south of Shanghai. The name "Gunpowder" was given to this speciality because of its tightly rolled leaves which have the form of balls. When the rolled tea leaves are brewed, they begin to crackle which is how it got the name "gunpowder tea".

The tea is very original in taste, with a very strong and tangy aroma. If you find this tea too strong, you may pour away the first brew and reuse the leaves. The second one then offers the tender soul of the tea.

At last, strong green tea

My usual stockist has been out for many weeks. When this happens I buy other teas online, and all have been disappointingly light - until I found Wiltshire. Delicious and packs a proper green-tea punch.

Thoroughly Recommended.

I’ve been ordering from The Company for years now. Easily the best Gunpowder Tea I’ve found in this country. Service has always been exemplary, and the product exceptional.
