Product Description

Gunpowder green tea gets its name from the shape of the leaves, so tightly rolled they resemble the pellets used as musket shot. The taste is mildly astringent and grassy, and yields a slightly smoky aroma.


Green teas are delicate; they brew best at a low temperature for a short period of time.
