Uncle Lee's Premium Bulk Gunpowder Green Tea
Loose Leaf 100 g

Uncle Lee's Gunpowder Green Tea in Bulk derives its name from the shape of the finished tea leaves. Legend has it that the name "unpowder" was given by an imaginative English clerk who thought that the dark green tea leaves, rolled into round pellets, looked like gunpowder. In China the name for gunpowder tea is "pearl tea". Rolling the leaves has a beneficial effect on the quality of the tea. Not only does it force to the surface flavorful juices that otherwise would remain in the leaf, but the pellet retains its shape during firing and keeps its freshness longer than other loose leaf teas. Uncle Lee's Gunpowder Tea has a dark golden color, roasted or toasted taste with a strong aftertaste lingering in the front palette, and a strong roasted or toasted aroma. When brewed, the teas unfold into large leaves. Our Gunpowder Green Tea is rich in natural fluoride, calcium and anti-oxidants and has only 20 to 30 mg. of caffeine per cup.

This is one of the best tasting green teas out there, very mellow flavor.

Rick: more than a year ago

This is an excellent tea. By far one of the most flavourful I've tried so far. And it's fun to put a small amount of it into the tea pot or French press and add the water, then come back to find a huge amount of big leaves in the water. But most importantly, the flavour is there, subtle if you brew it to be subtle, but also easy to make very pronounced without any bitterness or too much caffein. I highly recommend giving it a try.
