Organic Pinhead Gunpowder Green Loose Leaf
Chinese green tea is painstakingly hand-rolled leaf by leaf into very tiny spheres. Known as zhucha or “pearl tea” to the Chinese, it takes special skill to roll tea leaves into this unusual shape.
Because they are so tightly rolled, these little pearls keep exceptionally well, which is rare for high quality green tea. When infused, the little pearls gracefully unfold producing a flavorful dark green liquor with unique fragrance and a delightful, lingering aftertaste. This wonderful tea may be enjoyed any time of the day but is especially pleasant with meals.
