A Chinese tea known as Zucha meaning pearl tea. Even, rolled, pellet shaped leaf-resembling gunpowder, with a smooth nutty flavor. Gunpowder is one of the best known and most liked of all standard green tea.
Gunpowder green tea is one of the most forgiving green teas to prepare. It is easy to measure and will tolerate a range of temperatures and is a joy to watch the pearls unfurl.
This makes a wonderful mint infused green tea. Just add a sprig of mint to flavor.
Packaged in a reusable tea tin. 2.5 ounces is enough for about 35 - 45 cups of tea.
You can steep this tea more than once.
