Gunpowder Pearls deliver a robust cup of tea at an affordable price. While some greens steep up light or delicate, these pearls keep a solid flavor foundation with moderate astringency and a hint of sweetness, reminiscent of a black tea. Then the overtones are uniquely green, with subtle hints of tart fruit (think green apple) and spring flowers. If you like a bold cup of tea, or you’re trying to reduce caffeine without sacrificing flavor, give our Gunpowder Pearls a try. We recommended brewing at 185° F, but for a more delicate cup, reduce the temperature or steeping time.
“Gunpowder” indicates the process of rolling tea leaves into round pellets, so that they resemble the namesake. You may find black or oolong gunpowder teas, but green tea is by far the most common.
Maybe you’re trying to move away from coffee? This is a great tea to keep in your cabinet. Or maybe you’re curious to try gong fu? This tea will get you started, with a flavor profile that adapts well to most any style of brewing. Cheers to finding your new tea ritual.
