Pinhead Gunpowder No. 1
Classic China Organic Pinhead-sized Gunpowder made of tiny tightly-rolled grey green leaves.
Gunpowder tea or “pearl tea” is made by rolling dark green tea leaves into small pellets which resemble gunpowder.
It is a nice, strong green tea with a distinctive nutty-oak taste. Also known as “Temple of Heaven” Gunpowder. A traditional favorite of meditating Buddhists (and non-Buddhists).
The cup is deep amber with a slightly fruity, smoky-spicy flavor. Medium astringency which can be fully mediated with a shorter steeping time. Makes a very good iced tea – try with mint and agave nectar!
This tea responds well to a short steep.
Also called “Temple of Heaven gunpowder” this is the highest grade Organic Gunpowder available.
