Gunpowder is one of the world’s most well-known teas. Called zhū chá (“pearl tea”) in Chinese, it is hand-rolled into tight pellets resembling old gunpowder, hence the name (honestly, I think “pearl tea” is much nicer). Gunpowder is a robust green tea with slightly smoky, dark flavor, and good strong body, but with a clean, slightly floral finish. Flavorful and invigorating but smooth and warm, enjoyed for its bright colors, comforting fragrance, and rich body.

Milk, sugar strongly discouraged.
