Chinese Gunpowder Pinhead Green Tea

In Stock From £3.40

The production of Gunpowder Green Tea dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618–907) – the tea leaves are withered, steamed, rolled into pellets (resembling gunpowder) and then dried.

Rolling renders the leaves less susceptible to physical damage and breakage and allows them to retain more of their flavor and aroma. A powerful, full-bodied tea - perfect for coffee drinkers looking for an alternative morning drink.

PREPARATION

Place 3g (1tsp) of tea per person in a pot or cup infuser. Using boiling water to steep green tea can damage the leaves, so instead use water that is around 80°c (boiling water that has been allowed to cool for 2 minutes). Brew for 3 - 5 minutes according to taste. The same leaves can be re-used for up to 3 infusions.
