Gunpowder is one of the most famous names in tea, partly due to the story that the name was given by a young English port clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls were gunpowder. The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size and style and are then rolled into tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favoured because of this characteristic.
This tea produces a reasonably strong dark-green brew with a memorable fragrance and a long lasting finish. Gunpowder is denser than other teas so one or two teaspoons for a teapot is all that is required.
