Why Gunpowder Green Tea?

The leaves of gunpowder tea are specially selected for quality, size, and style. They are then rolled into tight nugget-like balls, which allows the tea to keep a lot longer than other green teas. Our Gunpowder tea comes from the Taipei county in Taiwan. 

When pouring boiled water onto the leaves, the tiny pellets open up like flowers and sink slowly to the bottom of the cup. This Gunpowder produces a strong dark green color with a a slightly bitter flavor. Please note that Gunpowder is denser than other teas, so one or two teaspoons for a teapot is all that is required. 

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 is great on it's own, no need to add anything!

Great experience

I wasn’t familiar with the company but decided to give them a try. I was pleasantly surprised to receive the order quickly. The tea is delicious! i ordered the Se Chung Oolong and the Gunpowder Green Tea. I have found my new favorite tea and company to order it from. I can’t wait to try some other varieties.

a little goes a long way

If it is made too strong, it is bitter and needs honey. When it comes to green tea, I prefer your Yerba Green Tea with its fresh green-tea taste.

My favorite green tea

This is my favorite green tea. It has a nice smooth flavor and help wake me up if I'm feeling a little sluggish in the afternoon.

Brew it on the shorter side if you want a lighter flavor (<4 min) or brew it on the longer side (7+ min) for a strong, but more bitter, tea. It also ices very well if you brew it at 2x strength and then dilute it with some ice and water. I even like it unsweetened.
