Green tea is processed just after plucking, which minimizes oxidation and delivers a pale green color and distinct earthy flavor. This type of delicious Chinese green tea is centuries old. Rolled to protect the quality of the tea leaves and preserve freshness, this green tea delivers a full-bodied cup with occasional smoky notes and a lingering citrus flavor. For a special treat, mixed with fresh mint leaves or a squeezed lemon, try gunpowder green tea on ice! When choosing gunpowder teas, look for smaller size rolled "pearls" with a shimmer appearance. This indicates younger, more tender leaves were selected for processing.
As with all teas, gunpowder green tea should be kept in an airtight container away from light and heat. All of our teas come loose leaf in a 2oz tin with 1 reusable tea bag.
