Our China Pinhead Gunpowder Tea is only plucked during April and May when the quality of leaves is at its highest, the resultant brew is a strong, dark green with an unforgettable fragrance. It's important to note that gunpowder tea is more dense than other green teas and as such requires less to make that perfect cup of tea.
Pinhead Gunpowder is also known as Pingshui green tea and is believed to have been named 'gunpowder' after an English clerk thought the tiny rolled green leaf balls were similar in appearance to gunpowder.
