Known in China as “Pearl Tea,” this tea owes its name to the shape of its tightly rolled tea leaves, which early European explorers compared with the shape of gunpowder. When infused, the leaves unfurl to produce a dark-green tea with a pungent flavor and piquant fragrance.
How to Prepare
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 175-180 degrees and steep tea for 1-1.5 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Pure green tea.
