Steenbergs Organic Gunpowder Tea is a delicious, cleansing loose leaf organic Chinese green tea with a hint of bitterness.  Steenbergs Organic Gunpowder Tea is a classic organic green tea that was one of the first styles of tea that floated back from China way back in the 1600s. Steenburgs Gunpowder tea is grown in Zhejiang province in China, it is rolled into dark green balls that reminded them of explosives. Darkening has not occurred because fermentation has not taken place, so the liquor is transparent and straw-coloured with a dry, mildly astringent taste.


How to brew Steenbergs organic Gunpowder green tea from China - into a warmed teapot, put 1 teaspoon of organic gunpowder tea per cup plus 1 teaspoon for the pot.  Bring fresh water to boil and pour over organic gunpowder tea.  Steep for 3 - 5 minutes.



Part of the Steenbergs range of speciality loose leaf green, white and oolong teas.
