The leaves of this tea are rolled into tight pellets, and its flavour is refreshing and tangy. A special technique perfected over centuries to preserve freshness.
Once in the cup with hot water added, the leaves of the shiny pellets unfurl back into life. The flavour is original, strong and includes tart aromas.

Our superb example of this distinctive style of green tea, Gunpowder, originates from Wuyi County, Zhejiang Province on China's Eastern seaboard. Zhejiang's humid, subtropical climate is perfectly suited to tea cultivation.
Legend has it that the tea's name was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like pellets of gunpowder.
