A light, sweet, classic green tea that will dance across your palette, this Gunpowder tea has been created in the great, classic Chinese tradition. Enjoy the yellow-green liquor any time of day, but especially before meals or with mild food so its delicate aspects can be most appreciated.
This high quality green tea was given the name "Gunpowder" by a British East Indian agent in China, but the Chinese call it "Pearl tea".
In general, green tea comes from the same source as white, oolong, and Black tea; the tea bush known to botanists as Camellia sinensis. All teas are generally distinguished from each other by where they come from and how they are fermented.
In a traditional Gunpowder tea; full, tender young leaves are rolled into loose pellets while drying and explode into full green tea leaves when brewed. For this teabagged version, the same concept is employed, but with smaller leaf pieces so you can enjoy the full flavour and quality of a whole-leaf tea with the convenience of a teabag.
Compared with other green teas, Gunpowder green tea tends to have more flavour per leaf. It makes a great hot tea, and is even better iced.
