Green tea from the Guangdong province of China. Gunpowder tea, as the name implies, is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Continuing this bang-bang theme, our special-grade version of this tea is named after a year that saw lots of cannon action. Our "1812 Gunpowder" produces a full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness. And mixes well with peppermint to produce a popular "Moroccan Mint" tea.
Steep at 180° for 2 minutes.
