Gunpowder is a variety of green tea, produced in the Zhejiang Province of China, of which each leaf has been rolled into a small pellet, resembling 18th century gunpowder. Other common names are “zhucha” in Pinyin or “pearl tea” in China.
This tea is 100% organic.
When preparing green tea, it is important to use water that is hot but not boiling. Use water of about 80 degrees Celsius and steep it for only 2 – 3 minutes.
