Uncle Lee's Premium Gunpowder Green Tea in Bulk derives its name from the shape of the finished tea leaves. Legend has it that the name "Gunpowder" was given by an imaginative English clerk who thought the dark green tea leaves, rolled into round pellets, looked like gunpowder. In China, the name for gunpowder tea is "pearl tea." Rolling the leaves has a beneficial effect on the quality of the tea. Not only does it force to the surface flavorful juices that otherwise would remain in the leaf, but the pellet retains its shape during firing and keeps its freshness longer than other loose leaf teas.

Ingredients: Premium Gunpowder Green Tea Leaves

Directions: The fresh water used to make this tea should not be boiling but should be about 160 to 180 degrees F or 90 to 100 degrees C. Use about one teaspoon of tea for every 8 oz (150 ml) of water. Steeping time should be anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes depending on desired strength and quantity of tea. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. When preparing this tea, the leaves can be used multiple times, until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. The use of a covered glass or ceramic cup is sometimes recommended for steeping in order to appreciate the tea leaves. A stainless steel "tea ball" is also recommended for steeping the tea. Each canister will yield approximately 50 to 75 servings.

Contains 20 to 30 mg. of caffeine per cup.

Gunpowder green tea It is not quite what I expected for a gunpowder green. It is much stronger than expected; useless and it tastes fine. It was not quite what I was looking for. but is a good tea for the price. September 1, 2013
A good bargain Loose green tea I'd been buying somewhere else had been deteriorating in quality. Finding this product was a nice surprise. June 4, 2013
