Gunpowder Green Tea Fair Trade 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.

Ingredients: Organic Green Tea*. *Fair Trade Certified™ by Fair Trade USA.

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.

Gunpowder Green

I use this Gunpowder Green in the morning by mixing a little with my Darjeeling for the health benefits. It makes a great morning cuppa with milk and I crave it. There is no going back to tea bags once you have tried this especially with the green and black teas. Definitely a winner and a staple in my kitchen!!
