Description

Gunpowder Green Tea - Loose Leaf Pouches

The Gunpowder Green Tea blend from English Tea Store is a stronger green tea from China with a distinctive nutty/oak taste. It makes a darker green color tea.

Legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by an young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size and style. They are then rolled into very small tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favored because of this characteristic. Chinese exporters recommend gunpowder for iced tea flavored with lemon and sugar. Gunpowder tea is also very popular in Morocco where the leaves are boiled and mint and sugar are added.

Pinhead Gunpowder is more dense than other teas so if you are making a teapot full you only require one or two teaspoons for a teapot.

Chinese researchers have found that gunpowder tea is high in fluoride and known to reduce cavities. They say that a human body requires 1-2 milligrams of fluoride a day. Ten grams of gunpowder tea (enough to make 3 cups of strong tea) can supply this amount.

I rarely drink coffee any more because it bothers my stomach. I am strictly a Green Tea person, and Gunpowder is my go-to every day tea. I have always been pleased with the quality of your teas.

We've been buying the loose leaf pouches of Gunpowder Green for many years. We started with the 4oz size and have now worked up to the 5lb pouch to save on shipping and cost. Thank you for a great product. No other tea compares to it. We always recommend it to our friends!

This Gunpowder is excellent with a touch of Orange Blossom Water, found in most Middle-Eastern stores. Steep tea with sugar and a few drops of Blossom Water per cup. After three minutes, add 1-4 sprigs of cleaned Mint per cup, depending on your like/or love of mint. <br>It’s a wonderfully tasty treat, a dessert unto itself, or great accompaniment to cakes and cookies. Doesn’t usually go well with chocolate for me, becuase they are both so delicious that they compete to be the star of the show, and all that competition is too stressfull for a simple treat. But I’m sure some will dare to tempt fate.<br>Either way, the Tea will usually get the last laugh... Great With Mint!

ETS’s pinhead gunpowder tea has a milder and more complex flavor than their superior gunpowder tea. Both are 5 star. Another great one from ETS

I ordered the 4oz size and I was surprised with the flavor of this tea. It has a taste similar to blueberries and it quite yummy. This is the perfect tea for a nice talk with a friend or a pick me up kind of conversation tea. My 6 year old daughter and I add a little cream and sugar and make it a Mommy and Daughter tea party. Nice tea to have
