Gunpowder Tea

auto deliver details are shown in a tooltip

Boom, pow! The name of this strong green tea from China comes from the fact that the tea leaves are rolled up into tiny little balls that “explode” when splashed with hot water. Rolling tea leaves into these pellets renders the leaves less susceptible to physical damage and allows them to retain more of their flavor and aroma. And what a flavor! This tea has a a distinctive nutty/oak taste and produces a dark green cup. Blend it with fresh mint, sugar and steaming hot water to make your own traditional Moroccan mint tea!

My husband doesn't care for tea, but I've coaxed him to try the Gunpowder; he takes two or three sips actually. Good stuff.
