Organic Gunpowder Green Tea

火青绿茶

The Origin Story

Our Organic Gunpowder is a bold and full flavoured green tea without being overpowering or bitter - the perfect balance of sweet, refreshing and moreish flavour. As with all our green teas, this tightly rolled tea is made from tea grown in Spring for the freshest flavour.

The best Gunpowder green teas have a shiny surface, a hallmark of freshness, and are deftly rolled into tightly curled pellets.

This is truly an excellent everyday green tea and world away from examples you’ll find in the supermarket. Learn about our world of green tea.

    Since I first tried this gunpowder green tea I haven't bothered buying any other. it's gorgeous and I'm addicted. Have been starting the day with this for years now.

    Really different!
    Aptly described in the marketing as much sweeter, less bitter than other gunpowders I've tried. Needs a good single layer of the tiny pearls covering the base of the infuser for best results. Manages a good 2-3 brews.

    Having tried a number of gunpowder teas I found this one too smokey in flavour with an unpleasant bitter aftertaste.

Why Not Try
