A hearty, strong, green tea that is rolled in small pellets and was aptly awarded its title, because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century. Originally rolled tightly to preserve freshness and maintain moisture during long voyages overseas, it still holds true as an unsurpassable fresh tea that is full of dark bold color and a striking taste that is unforgettable. Gunpowder tea is astringent and mildly bitter and you can add a very small pinch of Stevia or Spearmint to soften the taste. Contains caffeine.
1 oz. Bag Loose Gunpowder Green Tea, also available by the pound.
