Pinhead Gunpowder

Organic Green Tea

Organic

Once upon a time a young English clerk thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder, and the name was born! This is the best grade available which uses only the smallest nuggets. A full bodied cup with a slightly nutty flavor, this is an ideal every day green tea at a 'buy 'em by the barrel price'.

Excellent strong green tea!

If you like green teas that have a strong flavor, then this is a great one to try. Brew it at the proper temperature and for the right amount of time, and you'll have an excellent cup of tea waiting for you. This is now my favorite green tea!

Great Tea

Gunpowder tea has been one of my favorites for years. I keep some at work so I can have it there instead of the tea bags provided for free. I use it as a base when I am experimenting with adding flavorings and I also use it for iced tea, usually adding some spearmint or peppermint, but occasionally other ingredients such cinnamon or ginger. It is great by itself and very flexible in making your own blends.

My Favorite Green Tea

A nice change of pace from the black teas I usually drink. Strong for a green tea, I use the Lemon Crystal Rock Sugar to enhance the flavor.

Good quality - good price

I've bought some amazon teas, however the grades are noticeably lower, you get what you pay for, this one doesn't have any twigs or leaves I drink it every day and sometimes iced with lemon
