Gunpowder Hand Rolled Chinese Loose Leaf Green Tea Explode Some Healthy Living


£5.00




  • Formosa is famous for its Gunpowder green tea and most Gunpowder Tea that you find will have come from this Island, just off Mainland China, now called Taiwan.
  • This is Chinese Gunpowder from the province of Zhejiang. Most of the tea produced in this province is for export although production is way below that of Formosa.
  • Gunpowder Tea is so called because of the resemblance to Gunpowder pellets and also the way that the rolled green tea 'explodes' when placed in hot water.
  • A very refreshing drink, it is the basis of Moroccan mint tea. Moroccan tea is served in small glasses painted with colourful designs. A Moroccan saying states, "Tea should be bitter as death, sweet as life and as mellow as love".
  • You will receive 115 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make 172 cups of tea. Two grams per cup, each cup infused three times. This is less than three pence per cup - What a bargain!
  •  At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
