Gunpowder Green Tea#1300
Green tea leaves tightly rolled into the shape of little pinhead pellets resembling gunpowder. Gunpowder tea stays fresh longer than other green teas because of its compressed form. It's higher in caffeine than most other green teas and used by athletes to improve endurance. Steeps a great cup with slightly grassy notes.
Use 1 teaspoon per 8 oz. cup. Bring water to a boil and let it cool slightly before pouring over tea leaves. Steep 2-3 minutes. Tea can be re-infused multiple times by adding 1 minute to each additional steep.
Water temperature: 185 ºF
