CUP CHARACTERISTICS: a green tea with strength and captivating green tea taste. The tight curl gives gunpowder a long shelf life - a prized attribute.

STORY: legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The tealeaves are specially selected for quality, size and style. They are then rolled into tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favored because of this characteristic.
