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. Using the youngest, most tender green tea leaves, the Pinhead Gunpowder is a smaller rolled tea than our Gunpowder Imperial.

When brewed, the small, tightly balled, silvery-green leaves open into large olive green leaves. Pinhead Gunpowder Green tea has a medium body, with a very delicate hint of smokiness in the light amber cup.

Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2-3 minutes.

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