fresh from originGunpowder is a very famous tea, inside and outside of China. Gunpowder is widely consumed throughout the Middle East, often blended with fresh mint and sugar. In China, this tea is called Green Pearl tea; the tight roll of the leaves helps retain flavor and aroma for much longer than many other greens. A delicate shine on the pellets indicate the tea is quite fresh.
