Product Description

Details

World famous Gunpowder derives its name from the Chinese word “Zhucha” meaning Pearl Tea, referring to the tightly rolled shape of the leaves. Early European tea importers renamed this tea because of its similar shape to gunpowder pellets. Today, this tea is the most common green tea in the world. The brew has a rich, roasted, slightly smoky aroma with a sweet vegetal flavor and a satisfying astringency.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 170°

China White Peony "Bai Mu Dan" White Tea

White teas are made only from the newly sprouted buds and/or young leaves of the tea plant. The buds are heat braised in covered pans or dried in direct sun with minimal superficial oxidization. Classic style white peony is made in April, when the leaves are at their tastiest. The buds have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined. The flavor is delicate, herbaceous, with an autumnal aroma and a very smooth, sweet, nutty flavor.

Steep Time: 30 seconds-3 min
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1.5
Infusions: 1-3
