From Jing Tea

The freshest, greenest Gunpowder you will ever taste. It is not earthy and dull like standard gunpowder.

In Chinese this tea is called ‘Zhu Cha’ which means ‘Pearl Tea’ on account of the way it is rolled during production.

Fair Trade certified and organic.

I decided to try this one because of twing’s recent post on gunpowder. I hadn’t tried one, so I dug through my cabinet until I found something to fit the bill. The directions on this tea remind me that I really need to write down Celsius to Fahrenheit conversions and post them near my tea! It said to only heat the water to 60 C, which is 140 F, but as the Breville only goes down to 160 F, that’s what I used. (My tea thermometer is MIA and probably stashed in my daughter’s play kitchen. Hopefully.)

The dry tea smells just like leaves, fresh and grassy, too. 160/2 min. Now the tea smells slightly deeper. It looks very delicate with a very pale light yellow/green liquor. It’s very clear, too. The taste, as expected is delicate and subdued. I’m not tasting anything floral or fruity although I do sense a sweetness, but it tastes nice, just what I would expect of a green. I was concerned that at the higher than recommended steeping time, it would end up tasting like boiled asparagus, but it didn’t at all. It’s taste is fresh, too. There is no bitterness whatsoever and it’s very enjoyable.

In my house, moving the furnishings, heavy cleaning, and family searches for items usually turn up all sorts of lost souls…like tea thermometers :)

I am glad to have had a positive influence on someone today!

I might have to pat her down. If only she’d stop wiggling around. ;)

I did like the gunpowder, too. It’s a nice, fresh tea when I’m not in a flavored mood, although I probably wouldn’t order all the way from Jing in England again.

Super fresh, delicious gunpowder green. I am not a huge green tea fan, and even less so of gunpowder, but this stuff is really yummy. Try it cold brewed as an iced tea. Wow. Sweet and light, with a surprisingly vegetal finish.

Last night i was trying this organic gunpowder supreme, always when i see the word supreme i get high expectations! So far other tea’s from jing that are supposed to be supreme, are simpel enough better then there average tea (and thats already tasty).

So i opened my free sample i received ages ago (from a competition) and i see pretty big green balls off tea! They look moss green and smell pretty fresh. I’m taking one teaspoon off these leave’s and making myself a nice cup with 80°c water and let it steep for a bit less then 3min.

The taste is a great not metallic like some gunpowders can be, its not really grassy either its strong for a green tea but still very fresh when it first touches the mouth. After a few more sips and when the cup cools down more u get real great sweet mineral tasting tea.

I was really surprised off this tea, usually gunpowder is ‘cheap’ green tea but this is in price pretty cheap but has a very good quality to! Can recommend this gunpowder to any green tea lover!

More so i had there Moroccan Mint before and its a huge difference offcourse there is no mint in this one but still… didn’t expect there base tea to be this tasty on its own!

Tried this 50-50 (by spoons, not by weight!) with Jing tea’s peppermint leaves for a “home-blended” version of their Moroccan mint tea. Used slightly hotter water than recommended (80C, not 60) as the sweetness of the mint means that IMO more tannin is needed. In any case it was excellent and very refreshing on both the first and second infusions.
