Even, rolled, pellet shaped leaf with smooth, nutty flavor. Organic Pinhead Gunpowder Green Loose Leaf Tea.
Superior quality gunpowder tea with a full-bodied cup and smooth taste. .Gunpowder tea originated in
the Zhejiang province of China and its production dates back to the Tang dynasty. It gets its name from its leaves which are rolled into tiny round balls resembling gunpowder. Its leaves are withered, steamed, rolled and then dried. The rolling protects the leaves from physical damage and retains its natural flavor and aroma for long period of
time. The leaves are then selected for their quality, size and style; small, tightly rolled leaf pellets, about the size of a pinhead, mark high quality.
These potent leaves expand fully during infusion and sink down in slow graceful pattern, releasing a captivating nutty green taste.
You can blend it spearmint to create the famous ‘Moroccan Mint’ tea.
