This is our famous Gunpowder green tea with a twist. Inspired by a trip to Morocco where almost all tea is drank with the addition of mint leaves, we added fresh spearmint to our delicious gunpowder green tea to create our very refreshing Moroccan Mint green tea.
Gunpowder tea production started with the Tang Dynasty. Gunpowder tea leaves are naturally withered, steamed, rolled, and then dried. California Tea House’s high grade Gunpowder are still rolled by hand into small tight balls that make the tea leaves less susceptible to damage, allowing them to retain more of their flavor and aroma.
Use 1 tablespoon of gunpowder tea for each cup of mineral water. Steep the tea for 1 to 2 minutes at about 180oF.
