A hearty, strong, Organic Chinese Green Tea that is rolled in small pellets and was awarded its title because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century. Originally rolled tightly to preserve freshness and maintain moisture during long voyages overseas, it still holds true as an unsurpassable fresh tea that is full of dark, bold color and a striking taste that is unforgettable. Because of its tightly rolled leaf, it has a great shelf life.
Packaging: To preserve freshness, aroma, and potency, our 1 lb loose teas are packaged in a polyfoil bag with a re-sealable zipper closure, protecting the contents from light exposure and moisture.
Daily serving size: Pour 8-12 oz of simmering water (180° F preferred) over 1 tsp. of tea. Steep 2-3 minutes.
