Gunpowder

China / Camellia sinensis

These tiny little pellets of tea are similar in color and shape to the black powder of the 17th century, hence the name. Brewed alone, this first grade Gunpowder is a delicate brew with classic Chinese green earth tones. It is also one part of our Moroccan Mint blend.

Brewing Instructions: Brew at 190°F until the leaf opens to give the best flavor, usually about 2 minutes.
