Our Gunpowder Deluxe has a natural sweet flavour with a slight earthy note and a hint of pepper. This famous Chinese tea is produced in the Zhejiang Province of China. This beautiful tea gets its name from the dry leaf, which resembles gunpowder pellets and explodes into a long leaf on steeping in hot water.
To avoid the bitter or burnt taste you can sometimes get with a green tea avoid boiling water and steep your leaves in water that is just off the boil.
To Enjoy: Use 1 tsp per cup, add hot water that hasn’t yet begun to bubble (around 80°C) and brew for 3 mins. Serve immediately or remove leaves.
