Pinhead Gunpowder (Organic, Fair Trade)


We currently have 1 in stock.

The leaves for this classic Chinese green tea are rolled into small pellets which resemble gunpowder, hence its name.  Pan fired, Pinhead Gunpowder has good body and a wonderful, mellow green tea flavor with a subtle hint of smoke.  Use a scant teaspoon per cup, water just before the boiling point, and steep for about 2 minutes.  May be resteeped nicely.  (Blend with spearmint for the flavor of Moroccan Mint tea.)
