Tasting Notes Tightly rolled, green-grey leaves that unfurl when infused. This tea possesses a slightly fruity flavour. Gunpowder has a greenish dry golden liquor with a light smoke and nutty character.
Gunpowder tea gets its name from the tightly rolled pearls the leaves are rolled into, which were actually mistaken for real gunpowder by traders in the 16th century. Perfect for the afternoon.
