Temple Of Heaven Gunpowder Pinhead Gunpowder Loose Leaf Green Tea. Tightly rolled even leaf style. Strong cup character.
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 flavour 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. Due to its superior quality and freshness, it can be infused several times over, each infusion yielding a unique flavor and aroma and a stronger cup.
You can blend it spearmint to create the famous ‘Moroccan Mint’ tea.
