Overview of Gunpowder Green

This traditional China green tea is commonly known abroad as “Pearl Tea”, deriving its name from its round, tightly rolled leaves and grayish-green color. Our offering is a special grade of Gunpowder Green tea that is comprised of tender leaves that unfold magnificently in your teapot when brewed. Its sweet fragrance and clean, fresh taste have made Gunpowder one of our most popular green tea selections.

Our Gunpowder Green tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a boil and then allowed to cool for 1 minute (170-180° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Gunpowder Green tea should be steeped for 2-3 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

I always think of this as "The People's Tea". It has a fuller,tasty, earthy flavor- which is a nice touch if you prefer more body in your green teas than many Japanese style greens. As previous reviewers said, it is great hot or iced and is a popular sun-tea in my house. This is also a very cost-effective tea; you get a big flavor/weight ratio from this and the price is very approachable.

I have been drinking a pot of this tea every morning for over four years. If you want a little Zen in your morning as you wind up for the day's activities, this is it. Watch as the tightly balled up leaves slowly unravel and spread in to full, deep green, beautiful leaves - smell the gentle aroma as you slowly pour, and feel "at one" as you sip. Splendid!
