Why Black Pearl Gunpowder Tea?

Legend has it that black gunpowder tea was first created to trick pirates into thinking they'd been sold real gunpowder, to buy a local village time while it was under attack. 

The tea is still made to match that original style. It's picked, dried, and then hand-rolled to create the distinctive gunpowder shape, similar to green gunpowder tea. The brewed tea is bright with a golden hue, with notes of earth, burgundy, and a little honey on the finish. 

Try this black gunpowder tea and discover for yourself why it has been passed on and enjoyed for generations.

Brewing Instructions

Use 1 tsp per 8oz of boiling water, and let steep for 3-7 minutes.

Steep 6 teaspoons in a quart of boiling water, then add 3 quarts cold water and refrigerate.

This tea goes great with milk, honey, lemon, and mint!

My Wife's New Favorite

This was our first time trying this tea. It instantly became my wife's favorite. We like the way the full size leaves of the gunpowder style expand and don't find their way through the filter in the tea pot.
