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 Rising Phoenix Green Tea

Grown in the subtropical hills of Guizhou, the top bud sets are plucked “ming-chien,” or before the spring rains. After a quick withering, the leaves are fired and shaped, dried, and then a second stage of shaping occurs. This second shaping leaves the leaves resembling Gunpowder, although with much more selective plucking and more careful processing, the similarity is merely aesthetic.

Steep Time: 30 seconds - 2 min
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1-4
