Gunpowder tea gets its name from the characteristics of the leaves, which are rolled into small, greyish-green pellets resembling old-fashioned gunpowder. Gunpowder is rolled in this shape to protect the quality of the tea leaves and preserve freshness. This green tea has a full-bodied, pungent flavor, and a slightly smoky aroma with a light, lingering citrus flavor. Gunpowder green tea makes a special treat mixed with fresh mint leaves or squeezed lemon and served over ice.

Steeping Tips

  • Take care not to poor boiling water over your tea. Boiling water will scorch the tea leaves.
  • Use fresh, cold water. The quality of water will affect the taste of your tea.
  • Use a strainer or infuser basket to steep your tea rather than a tea ball or clamping spoon. This gives room for the whole leaf tea and herbals to expand and fully infuse.
  • Remove the tea from the water after the designated steeping time. Over steeped tea, or stewed tea, will create a bitter tasting brew.
  • For a stronger tasting brew, simply add more tea to your strainer or infuser basket before steeping.
  • Always remove tea leaves from water to prevent the tea from becoming bitter.
