Gunpowder Tea

$5.10$9.00

Gunpowder Green Tea from China. This tea is growing in popularity, a little naturally on the bitter side. The leaves are rolled into small balls while wet, giving it a unique characteristic. These small balls resemble “gun pellets” which one might say “gunpowder tea” obtained its name from.

After pouring the hot water on these little balls of fire – watch them unfold into a slightly bitter brew. Remember green teas don’t usually like that boiling water – so take the pot to the tea, which will cool it down enough for the “greens”. And only steep those 1-2 minutes. Gunpowder is a tad bitter on its own, so don’t think you brewed it too long 🙂 NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you’ll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled “normal canister or package” AND we add a little more tea for less money!

DescriptionGunpowder Green Tea from China. This tea is growing in popularity, a little naturally on the bitter side. The leaves are rolled into small balls while wet, giving it a unique characteristic. These small balls resemble "gun pellets" which one might say "gunpowder tea" obtained its name from. After pouring the hot water on these little balls of fire - watch them unfold into a slightly bitter brew. Remember green teas don't usually like that boiling water - so take the pot to the tea, which will cool it down enough for the "greens". And only steep those 1-2 minutes. Gunpowder is a tad bitter on its own, so don't think you brewed it too long :) NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Pu-erh (poo-yair) is a VERY hardy Black tea. Some may say... an acquired taste. It comes from the bold leaf tea which is from the providence of Yunnan in China. It's an "aged tea", which means as a result of it's oxidation process it actually gets smoother and "better" over time. Where most teas will lose taste and quality with time. It has a very EARTHY taste. In part because it's "composted" ( ...yes I said composted) during the finial phase of processing. Lower in tannins than other blacks it doesn't tend to become bitter when steeped. Actually the longer you steep it the STRONGER it becomes. This is the "wine" of teas... at least in concept. Like a fine wine, pu-erh gets better with time. If you want to try a sample with your order, feel free to ask us. I love it, but it really is an acquired taste. When I smell and taste it I can only think of one thing.... for me to know and you to find out. SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Sencha Fine- Japan's best. Japan is known for their production of greens, they export mostly green teas- so they obviously now what they are doing with the delicate harvesting process. We use this quality base for our flavored greens. Although a heavier and denser whole leaf, we think it holds many of our flavors best. Simply put... Sencha Fine is a quality green tea on its own! It is said that many estates only use woman to pick the leaves, they feel they have a more delicate handling of the harvesting. They also have smaller hands which allows them easier access doing less damage to the leaves. NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Yerba Mate (erba - ma-tay) This is a VERY popular drink from South America. Called "The Drink of the Gods" by many indigenous groups there, it has been enjoyed for centuries for its therapeutic properties. Found to have very similar chemical components to green tea; however, yerba mate is much more nutritious. Does contain a moderate amount of Caffeine. Mate - comes from a small evergreen (holly family). High in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. There is an entire "ritual" or process to drinking Mate. It's usually steeped in a hollowed gourd (Cuia), rolled around and compressed, then cold water can be added. A metal straw with mesh on the bottom called a Bombilla is used to drink from the bottom of the gourd, passed around, to the right (I believe) and shared with all in the circle. If you don't have a bombilla/gourd... it's totally OK, you can use a tea bag or strainer- just don't let your friends see you enjoying it this way, they might call the Bombilla Police! NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Look up and you'll see a picture of the Green Earl Grey in the stars :) Been asked by some of our green tea lovers, if we could come up with a green Earl Grey. And we did. We take a gunpowder earl grey base and had... more oil of bergamot and cornflowers and orange peels for some cool color. There you have it a Green Earl Grey Blend- enjoy! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Assam (India) Teas are a strong, full-flavored tea. Dark, golden infusion, is often used as a base in "Breakfast Teas". ORGANIC and one of the highest grades. This tea is used as well with other black tea bases for teas like Irish Breakfast, English & Russian Breakfast and Earl Greys.
