Organic Pinhead Gunpowder

Green Tea

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.

Colorado Loves It

I bought this as a gift for my son in Colorado, who expressly asked for it. I can't say how it tastes, but he loves it, and apparently can't get it out there.

Great Gunpowder Tea!

I've always been a fan of gunpowder teas but this pinhead gunpowder tea is the best one that I've tried! It has a smoky aroma and aftertaste that is amazing! If you like strong green teas or are a fan of gunpowder teas and are wondering if you should try this one, definitely go for it! I will be ordering more as soon as I run out.

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.
