About Green Tea
About Gunpowder Pearls
The "gunpowder grade" is a classic green tea from China (Camellia sinensis), known for its rolled pellet-like leaves. Like all green teas, it is unfermented. Hot water causes the tea leaves to open up like flowers and sink slowly to the bottom in graceful patterns.
