DESCRIPTION

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!).

Brewing…

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!

Pause, Rebalance & Thrive.

Our mission is to empower you to pause and rebalance whilst sipping ethically sourced, highest quality tea. Our 3 step ‘tea in mind’ process fuses our knowledge of tea with our love for self-care & philosophy by suggesting a series of tea routines.

Our suggested caffeine levels contained in this tea are based on the results of an experiment which we conducted with Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh in 2013.  The experiment measured the mg levels of caffeine in a 300ml cup of brewed tea.  The more teacups illustrated, the stronger the caffeine level!

HOW WE LIKE IT
To Enjoy: Use 1 tsp per cup, add hot water that hasn’t yet begun to bubble (around 80°C) and brew for 3 mins. Serve immediately or remove leaves.

SUSTAINABILI-TEA

Our tea is carefully curated and ethically sourced from the highest quality tea gardens all over the world. The packaging is also created with care to ensure we do our part to look after nature’s wonders.

Our loose leaf & tea bag cartons are 100% plastic free; they are crafted from recyclable cardboard and the inner bag is Natureflex, a biodegradable film created using wood pulp!

Our new 20g & 100g steel tins are designed to be reused again and again, and you can decant your leaf tea straight in.

We are committed to removing the very last of the plastic from our tea range. Our next big packaging change will be sourcing a fully sustainable bag for our 250g loose leaf & 45 tea bags, for now they are a high grade recyclable plastic so please reuse & recycle them responsibly.

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.
