Gunpowder is a classic green tea from Zhejiang province, China. As the name implies, Gunpowder tea is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble Gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness and a smooth mouthfeel. Blend Gunpowder tea with spearmint to create the famous 'Moroccan Mint' tea. Steep at 180°F for 2 minutes

      This is a good tea and isn't bitter if steeped correctly. Didn't leave a bitter taste on my tongue. Strong smell for a green . I liked the flavor which came out to be like a dark leafy green vegetable.

      A really straight forward gunpowder tea. Vegetal and a little smoky. Very high quality
