Savor this legendary green tea from the land of China. Legend has it that the Chinese name for this tightly rolled tea sounded much like "gunpowder" to an English ear and with it's pellet-like appearance and slightly smoky aroma the name stuck. Because the leaves are compressed into compact balls, the tea remained fresh for the British empire to enjoy throughout the world after a long imported journey on tea clipper ships. This organic lot has a slightly lighter taste compared to a conventionally grown Gunpowder but is a bit more refined with a note of sweet nuttiness.
Steep for 2 minutes in below boiling water, about 180°F
