The leaves of this green tea are rolled into the shape of little pinhead pellets resembling gunpowder. Gunpowder green tea (also called pearl or bead tea) tastes bold and lightly smoky. Gunpowder tea leaves stay fresh longer than any other green tea leaves due to its compressed form. Gunpowder tea is a yellow colour once brewed.
Ingredients: Organic Gunpowder Green Tea (Camellia sinensis)
Brewing: 1 teaspoon steeped for 2-3 minutes. Your tea should be brewed using fresh or filtered, pure cold water. You can use the same tea leaves for a second brew.
Gunpowder tea is derived from the Camellia sinensis tea plant. All green teas are processed differently from black, oolong, or white teas. Green tea leaves are steamed, which halts oxidisation. The lack of fermentation keeps antioxidants and other compounds in the tea leaves, which accounts for the tea's health-based attributes.
