Gunpowder Pinhead

Gunpowder Pinhead

Origin: Zheijang, China


Perhaps the most well known of green teas in the US, Gunpowder gets its unique name from the way the tea is rolled, giving it the appearance of pellets of gunpowder, thus the English name for this variety. A strong and full-bodied green, Gunpowder holds a vegetal bite to it, often slightly astringent with a smoky edge from high firing and processing.  A deeply satisfying staple to add to your collection.


Brewing Instructions: Use 1 teaspoon for 12 oz of water heated to 185F/85C. Steep 2 to 4 minutes.
