Pinhead Gunpowder Tea, 1st Grade

(1 customer review)


This tightly rolled green tea is 1st grade. It is crisp, refreshing and just a tiny bit smoky.


Product Description

The name Gunpowder refers to how the leaves of this tea are rolled into tight, little pellets. The pellet size for gunpowder teas can range from the larger pea leaf to smaller pinhead (the size we offer). The tight roll of the leaves allows this tea to stay fresh longer than other teas.

Give the leaves of this high grade Gunpowder a brief soak or rinse in the hot water – then discard the water – before actually steeping. The color of the liquor is golden yellow. It has a crisp, light astringency with a very mild sweetness. There is a subtle vegetal quality along with notes of smoke and a finish that hints of flower blossoms. From Anhui, China. Kosher.

Water Temperature: 170 - 190 Degrees
Steeping Time: 1 - 3 Minutes
Growing Region(s): China
Type: Green Tea

    I first had this green tea at Zell’s in Portland. It’s my favorite gunpowder green tea.
