A green tea with surprising body and captivating almost nutty green tea taste

Legend has it that the name of Gunpowder was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder.  The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size, and style.  They are then rolled into very small tight nuggets.  Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favoured because of this characteristic.  Chinese exporters recommend gunpowder for iced tea flavoured with lemon and sugar. The leaves for the tea are only plucked during April and May when the quality of the green leaf is at its highest.  The leaves are steamed and tightly rolled in the time-honored process.  Gunpowder is denser than other teas so if you are making a teapot full you only require one or two teaspoons for a teapot.
