China Gunpowder is a superior green tea grown in the hills of China’s Zhejiang Province. Its leaves are hand-rolled into small, pellet-shaped balls that resemble gunpowder of the 18th century. When steeped in water, they burst open like miniature explosions, releasing a slightly sweet, smoked oak flavor and a vegetal-fresh aroma. The result: a golden brew fit for Shangri-La, yet easily brought to your doorstep via our simple delivery service.
