Description
 
Gunpowder is one of the best known and widely drunk green teas in the world. Also known as the Green Pearl for its pleasing shape and color, our certified organic Gunpowder is produced in Zhejiang province under strict IMO supervision by rolling large, tender leaves into evenly sized little balls which "blossom" under hot water to produce a full, rich and smooth cup of refreshing green tea. Excellent as a hearty breakfast or afternoon tea or served with food anytime.

PREPARATION:
To prepare Gunpowder tea we recommend either a full-sized teapot or standard sized 6 oz Gaiwan. Use about half 3 grams of leaves per Gaiwan or per 10 oz of water, infuse with 70-75C (158-167F) water for 1-2 minutes. Because Gunpowder tea leaves are rather large and take a while to open fully, they may be re-infused several times.

4 of 5 blend with mint March 31, 2020
Reviewer: Chai Man from San Francisco, CA United States  
Imperial Tea doesn't offer a loose leaf version of their Moroccan Mint blend online; only in bags.

So, I procure mint elsewhere and blend my own, about a 50/50 mix.

Still great.

4 of 5 Great daily drinker November 2, 2017
Reviewer: LoydB from East Providence, RI United States  
This manages a bold 'green' taste without being too vegetal. The finish is slightly sweet. I do an initial 2-minute infusion, then add 30 seconds for a second steeping after that cup is done. This keeps astringency under control while bringing out the flavor that is still locked in the large leaves.
