Its nice once in a while to have a plain ol’ green tea rather than flavoured ones. I love this in the morning because its a perfect pick me up and its strong!
One of the best-known Chinese teas, this has the strongest and most robust flavour in our selection of greens. The tightly curled leaf balls resemble shot pellets (hence the name, which was coined by the British) and open into larger leaf particles when brewed. A strong yellow infusion has an assertive aroma with a waft of smokiness. The flavour is powerful, rich and full with fresh bitterness and a hint of dry astringency.
