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’ name comes from the dry leaf which resembles gunpowder pellets and explodes into a long leaf on steeping in hot water.
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 provide the highest quality ethically sourced teas from all over the world. What could possibly be better than that you may ask… Well, our teas are 100% plastic free. From the bio-film we use to hold them, we also use biodegradable and compostable labels on our refills and sachets, so we have you covered to enjoy our tea responsibly. Because really, to enjoy natures wonders, we all need to take care of it.
By switching to loose leaf tea you’re not only saving the planet from more packaging but you’re getting a great cup of tea. If you’re new to loose leaf tea, fear not. We have 100% plastic-free self-fill teabags with drawstrings for you to create your brew.
We think the best way to enjoy it is with an Infuser Mug or an Infuser Teapot like our colourful Eteaket teapots, (or the amazing cast iron Japanese Style teapots). Other handy tools include the Perfect Tea Measure Spoon and a Tea Timer.
