Chinese Gunpowder Tea is a distinctive green tea, identifiable by its leaves, which are rolled into tiny, shiny pellets. The flavor is stronger than most green teas, making it great for multiple infusions or as your everyday go-to drink.
Insider Tip: We use an organic variety of Pinhead Gunpowder green tea in our Moroccan Mint blend. Give it a try for something a little livelier.
Caffeine Level: Low.
Green teas are unoxidized and processed by withering or wilting, followed by pan-firing or steaming, then a shaping process. During the shaping processes, further drying takes place, giving each green tea a distinct shape, character, and flavor. Often shaped by hand in places like China or Vietnam, the skill to craft these teas is passed down from generation to generation. In Japan, most of the tea processing is done mechanically, using machines and conveyor belts to steam, shape, and cool the teas.
