Produced in Zhejiang province in China and rolled into pellet-like drops, this is one of our most popular varieties of green tea. Its name comes from the fact that the tea is rolled into pellets that resemble gunpowder. After the tea leaves have been picked they are withered, steamed, rolled and dried. Rolling the tea leaves allows the natural grassy flavour to be maintained within the pellets. This is the best way to get the full aroma of the fragrant natural ingredients. Gunpowder tea should be tried by every tea lover to experience the freshness it has like no other tea. Best served lightly brewed, expect a hint of China’s sweetness with a dry smooth taste.
