From Oliver Pluff & Company

Pinhead Gunpowder Green Tea – Temple of Heaven Grade, 4 oz

Lightly roasted and tightly rolled green tea.

Named due to its similar appearance to actual gunpowder.

Notes: Refreshing lemon and light vegetable. An excellent green tea for everyday brewing. Witness the “agony of the tea leaf” as the tightly rolled leaves fitfully unfurl to fully expand in hot water.

Colonial American History: In 18th century British America, tea was an expensive, exotic import, first popular with more wealthy colonists, then with the middle classes as well. According to mercantile records, various grades of gunpowder tea were a common import to America.

Size/Weight: 4 oz Loose Tea, sealed in highest quality 100% cotton envelope

Shelf Life: 24 Months
