Gunpowder Green Tea Organic

A hearty, strong, Organic Chinese Green Tea that is rolled in small pellets and was awarded its title because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century. Originally rolled tightly to preserve freshness and maintain moisture during long voyages overseas, it still holds true as an unsurpassable fresh tea that is full of dark bold color and a striking taste that is unforgettable. Because of its tightly rolled leaf, it has a great shelf life. A classic, bold, and unforgettable tea with a striking taste, with medium body and a crisp clear flavor.

Packaging: To preserve freshness, aroma, and potency, our 1 lb loose teas are packaged in a polyfoil bag with a re-sealable zipper closure, protecting the contents from light exposure and moisture.

Daily serving size: Pour 8-12 oz of simmering water (180° F preferred) over 1 tsp. of tea. Steep 2-3 minutes.

Fantastic! Don't buy anywhere else!

The tea is excellent and the shipping to my door was timely and correct. I researched all online Tea sites on the internet that I could find and reviewed their products. StarWest Botanicals has the best prices and the highest quality product!

I highly recommend their products!

excellent tea

I mix this in an equal part Bancha Green Tea and then I mix in 1/3 vol mint, and 1/3 vol lemongrass. It's a great mix for me. I love it.

It's a lot more fun mixing your own until you get what you like, that is why I order bulk on line.

Great for making Kombucha

Have been using this tea for years to make Kombucha. It's both economical and flavorful. Good stuff.
