Gunpowder Green Tea (3.2oz)
Veal Station Teas: All our custom tea blends are made with the highest possible quality USDA Certified Organic, Free Trade Certified ingredients.
A hearty, strong, Organic Chinese Green Tea that is tightly rolled in the shape of small pinhead pellets and was awarded its title because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century. For this special grade tea, the best quality leaves are selected and are rolled into the shape of an even tighter pinhead than the regular grade. Originally rolled tightly to preserve freshness and maintain moisture during long voyages overseas, it still holds true as an unsurpassable fresh tea. Because of its tightly rolled leaf, it has a great shelf life. It is a classic, bold and unforgettable tea with a striking taste and crisp, clear flavor.
Recommended Serving Instructions: Pour 8-12 oz of simmering water (180° F preferred) over 1 tsp. of tea. Steep 2-3 minutes.
