This famous Chinese tea is known for its characteristic leaf shape where the leaves have been rolled prior to drying to form loose pearl of pure green tea. This method protects against breakage of the leaf and helps to preserve more flavour and aroma than some flat leaf varieties.
When brewed, the leaves produce a dark-golden liquor and slightly sweet aroma. To taste, this tea is a strong, delicious and refreshing cup with a delicate, almost fruity finish with tones of apple and grape.
The shape isn't the only thing different about Gunpowder tea. The rolling of the leaves cause pockets of fresher green tea flavour to be preserved for longer than flat-leaf varieties, so Gunpowder ages excellently whilst still retaining those bright and refreshing green tea notes.
Place 1 heaped teaspoons per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 4--5 minutes. May be enjoyed with honey to taste.
