Tea - Gunpowder Green Loose Leaf
A beautiful green tea, perfect for kombucha.
A thick and strong green tea infusion, pronounced smokiness, coppery aftertaste.
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, it is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets that 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 complement to strong-tasting food.
