Tea Forté Gunpowder tea is mainly grown in the Ningbo region situated in the Chinese Zhejiang Province. The leaf of this green tea is hand-rolled into little pellet-shaped balls to preserve the natural oils and retain their natural aroma. When immersed in (near) boiling water these green tea pellets ‘burst open’ and elicit a slightly sweet flavor and the pleasing vegetal quality from a quality gunpowder tea. The pellet-shaped balls resemble 18th century gunpowder, hence their name.
