Chinese Gunpowder Special


Gunpowder originally comes from the Zhejiang province in South-East China and was the first Chinese tea known to the world outside of China.  The tea is named by the shape, which looks remarkably like shot pellets or gunpowder.  Upon infusion the leaf opens quickly to become large and flat.  The tea has a tart taste and bright green leaf.
