Gunpowder Imperial Green Tea-Organic

$ 4.79




  • Our USDA Certified Organic Gunpowder Imperial is the highest grade available and comes from the renowned "green tea triangle" in Anhui Province, China. Called "Gunpowder" because of the pellet like appearance, not all gunpowder green tea is the same. For the finest quality look for a consistent size and shape in the roll, a dark almost shiny finish to the leaf and a smoother, not as smoky a finish as some of the lower grade teas.
  • Organic Gunpowder Imperial Green Tea 

    Cup Characteristics: Full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness and a smooth mouthfeel..

    Infusions: Pale green yellow.

    Ingredients: Organic green tea

     
    Gunpowder tea is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness and a smooth mouthfeel.
  • Hot Tea Method:  Bring freshly drawn cold water to less than boil(180-183 degrees). Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 2-4 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
    Iced Tea Method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly less than boiled(180-183 degrees) water over the tea. Steep for 2-4 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
