Gunpowder Green and Mint (organic)


Product Description: This exciting and refreshing blend of Chinese gunpowder green tea and spearmint mingle together with every refined and pleasing sip.  The leaves of this green tea are rolled into the shape of pellets resembling gunpowder, giving this tea its name. Gunpowder green tea tastes bold and lightly smoky.  The rolled tea leaves stay fresh longer than other green tea because they are compressed.

This reviving blend is inspired by Morocco’s rich tea-drinking tradition.  It attains a perfect balance of the natural sweetness of spearmint with the brisk, slightly smokey notes of the gunpowder tea. In Morocco, where it is served throughout the day, both between and during meals, every cup is said to be a refreshing surprise. The tea is typically poured into small glasses from great height, thereby adding a certain theatre to the occasion and gently aerating the honey coloured liquor.

Steeping Time:  Do not use Boiling water on any Green Tea! You boil the water and let it wait for a 1-2 minutes. This will let the temperature drop to about 185 F to 180 F.
