Gunpowder Imperial Green Tea

SKU: T0017 1
Regular price $1.85

One of China's best-known teas! Gunpowder, is produced in the Zhejiang Province in eastern China. This tea was originally rolled into pellets (resembling gunpowder) to help keep it fresh for as long as possible on the long journey across the oceans.

These silver-green, tender buds and tips brew to a light amber cup, with a good body and a light lemon after-taste.

Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2 minutes.

Gunpowder tea pairs well with recipes for fish and smoked meats, and is excellent in salad dressings, sauces and spice blends.
