Buy Gunpowder Green Tea
This is Gunpowder like you've never tasted before. An extremely well made and flavourful version of one of the best known China teas.
Chinese Green Tea
Leaves are heated in a rotating drum or more traditionally by hand in a roasting pan (like a wok) or basket. The resulting teas tend to be darker yellow-green and usually have a range of earthy, roasted flavours.
Our Temple of Heaven is a classic Chinese green gunpowder tea. The finished tea is in the form of tightly curled pellets. These pellets are made during production by rolling and tossing the leaves in a figure of 8 pattern. Gunpowder teas can have larger pellets up to the size of a pea, Temple if Heaven has beautifully crafted tiny pellets that unfurl during brewing to give a yellow gold liquor with a slightly smoky, grassy flavoured tea.
