Temple of Heaven Gunpowder Green Tea is a wonderful green tea from the Guangdong province of China. Gunpowder Tea – as the name implies – is made up of leaves Hand-Rolled into tiny pellets. Continuing this bang-bang theme, this special-grade version of tea is named after a year that saw lots of cannon action.
Gunpowder tea is one of those green teas that you can keep filling your cup all day. It is pleasant to the palette with a wisp of smoky sweetness just present enough to make you pause after the first couple of sips. Many people also like this green as an a.m. coffee substitute as it does have a bit higher level of caffeine as do many green teas.
