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.
Region: China
TasteStrong taste with a slightly fruity flavour


DO NOT USE BOILING WATER on any GREEN tea as it will make it taste bitter.

"My husband loves your Gun Powder Green tea and I cannot do without your Earl Grey"

TEA BAGS: unfortunately we can no longer get the grade of tea we require to produce tea bags so this tea is now only available as loose tea.
