Gunpowder Deluxe – A true staple green
Our Gunpowder Deluxe has a natural sweet flavour with a slight earthy note and a hint of pepper. This famous Chinese tea is produced in the Zhejiang Province of China. The ‘Gunpowder Deluxe’ does not refer to the slight peppery taste of this tea, but instead to the shape of the leaves- the name comes from the dry leaf which resembles gunpowder pellets and explodes into a long leaf on steeping in hot water.
It was originally developed in China (which is where our Gunpowder Deluxe is sourced) but has spread to also be grown in Taiwan and makes up an important part of Moroccan tea culture too- they add mint and sugar to gunpowder tea while it’s brewing to create the distinctive mint tea that is the country’s national beverage
To avoid the bitter or burnt taste you can sometimes get with a green tea avoid boiling water and steep your leaves in water that is just off the boil (80 degrees to be exact!).
We think the best way to brew loose leaf tea is with an Infuser Mug or an Infuser Teapot like our colourful eteaket teapots or Curated Japanese Tea Sets. Other handy tools include the Perfect Tea Measure Spoon and a Tea Timer. Also available in our biodegradable leaf tea bags!View less detail
