Also known as the “Temple of Heaven”, this variety of gunpowder tea is one of the more popular green teas in China, especially in the eastern provinces. Using a centuries-old method, each leaf is rolled into a small pellet, resembling black powder and giving this green tea its unique name. This refreshing tea has a strong aroma with an underlying sweetness, and can be enjoyed throughout the day.
Taste: Medium bodied and invigorating, sweet mineral undertones with a delicate underling bitterness and a tangy edge.
Aroma: Cut grass interwoven with hints of mineral sweetness
Infusion: Medium bodied golden green infusion
Originates from China
Loose leaf tea:
We would recommend putting one teaspoon of tea per cup into an infuser or filter and then add freshly boiled water. For a pot of tea, always add one teaspoon of tea for the pot and one teaspoon for each person. The length of brewing time can vary according to an individual’s taste but we would recommend the following:
Brewing Temperature: 80°C
Brewing Time: 2-3 minutes
