Gunpowder Green Tea

1 5 5 2

Not too many teas can be described as explosive, but this gunpowder tea is powerful for a green tea. Strong and heavy with astringent green flavor and citrus, and with a hit of smoke at the back it’s a tea that packs a welcoming wallop at the start or end of a meal.

Program Details


Produced in the Zhejiang Provence of China gunpowder tea is a method of forming tea as opposed to a flavor. Withered and steamed green or oolong tea leaves are rolled by hand into tiny balls resembling pellets of black powder that are then dried out. This rolling process is done to help preserve the flavor and allow it to unfurl due to excessive bruising, producing a full-bodied cup.

Gunpowder green tea is somewhat astringent, piney, with hints of citrus and the front and flavors of smoke at the back. It’s a classic green tea to serve before a meal or as a simple digestif. It’s also extremely pleasant over ice with a splash of cream.
