Green tea from the Guangdong province of China. Gunpowder tea, as the name implies, is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Our special-grade version of this tea produces a full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness. And mixes well with peppermint to produce a popular “Moroccan Mint” tea.
Steeping: 1 tsp per 8 oz at 180° for 2-3 minutes.
