From Taylors of Harrogate

This green tea gets its name from its distinctive leaf style, which is said to resemble gunpowder shot. The tea is steamed, rolled by hand and dried in large open pans over a fire. When hot water is added to the tea it unfurls to reveal whole leaves floating in a clear green liquor, with a fresh, delicate flavour.

Use a warmed teapot and add one teaspoon of tea per person and an extra ‘one for the pot’. Add water just under the boil and infuse for 2-3 minutes. Serve on its own. You can top the teapot up with more hot water as you enjoy the tea.

This is a great quality tea and looks beautiful. The leaves are rolled up into tight little balls, and unfurl to deliver a liquor of good strength and freshness. I personally don’t like to let it steep for too long or it becomes a tad bitter. The people in the Taylors shops are always so lovely too!

I concur, if you let this steep too long, it can grow bitter. But it’s a very refreshing, delicate flavor, otherwise. I prefer it straight. Very nice afternoon or evening. I even have it later at night, and it doesn’t keep me up.
