Gun Powder

Gun Powder (Also known as Zu Cha Tea)

This is a great “every-day” green tea, with a smooth, bold refreshing taste that is slightly astringent. A great green tea to drink after a meal, it is a very popular tea often served in Chinese and Asian restaurants.  The leaves are hand picked and rolled into tiny balls in a similar manner to many oolong teas.  This, in fact, is where it gets the name “gun powder” from as the pellets loosely resemble tiny gun powder pellets!
