Gunpowder tea, often called 'Pearl tea', is a green tea with a thick, strong honey-like taste, with a smoky, and coppery aftertaste. As the name implies, is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets which resemble gunpowder. When brewed, gunpowder tea has a yellow appearance. While some gunpowder tea is machine rolled, our premium gunpowder is hand-rolled into very small pellets. Usually, the larger the pellets, the lower the quality of the tea. High-grade gunpowder tea will feature very small, tightly-rolled pellets, often called pinheads. Gunpowder tea is recommended as a compliment to strong-tasting food.

Full-bodied, rich and earthy with a slightly smoky, nutty character

Ingredients: Organic Tea (Camelia Sinensis)
