Full bodied, vegetal Green Tea with mild smoky aroma

Gunpowder tea is a classic green tea from Zhejiang province, China. As the name implies, Gunpowder green 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.

Gunpowder green tea is widely consumed throughout the Middle East, often blended with fresh mint and sugar. In China, this tea is called "Zhu Cha" (Green Pearl tea); the tight roll of the leaves helps retain flavour and aroma for much longer than many other green teas.
