Pinhead Gunpowder

Product information

$13.00

Description

One of the oldest green tea varieties from China, Pinhead Gunpowder was originally called 'Zhu Cha', which translates to 'Pearl Tea'. Later, it became known to the Western world by its British nickname, Gunpowder Tea. The unique method of rolling the tea into tiny pellets preserves the flavor and aroma in the leaf. This green tea brews a full-bodied cup with nutty notes and a hint of smoky depth.

Pinhead gunpowder

Pinhead gunpowder the name just about says it all from the slight smokey aroma you are in for a blast of great tea with the earthy notes that compliment the aroma you are in for a delightful experience.

Teenager approved

I bought this for my 17 yr old son who is just getting into the loose leaf tea world. He picked it based on the name alone. We purchased 10 other varieties and this is by far his favorite and he has since asked to order more.
