Gunpowder Green Tea

Gunpowder is one of the most famous names in tea, partly due to the story that the name was given by a young English port clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls were gunpowder. The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size and style and are then rolled into tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is flavoured because of this characteristic.

This tea produces a reasonably strong dark-green brew with a memorable fragrance and a long lasting finish. Gunpowder is denser than other teas so one or two teaspoons for a teapot is all that is required. If you like green tea then this is a very good example and it really stands apart from all the others we have tried, makes a great gift for a serious green tea lover.

Gunpowder how to brew?
Here are several tips for you to get the most from your Gunpowder Green tea:
Allow boiled water to cool to 82°C then infuse 1 heaped teaspoon per 260ml water for 3-7 minutes according to taste.

The leaves can be reinfused up to 3 times.

Using hot water to pre-warm your cup and utensils for brewing not only clears away any dirt or flavors from previous teas brewed, but it also keeps the tea at an ideal temperature.
Washing or rinsing your tea leaves before brewing can remove any impurities so that you can enjoy the pure authentic flavor of the Yunnan tea.
