One of the most popular teas in China, this organic variety of the Gunpowder produced in Zhejiang Province (where it is called “Zhu Cha”) is created by wetting the leaves a few times during the short roasting period. This slows the drying process and results in a curling of the leaves. Each leaf has been rolled into a small round pellet, resembling soldiers’ ammunition. 
Gunpowder’s rich honey-amber liquor only just begins to hint at the unusual flavors within. It elicits an aromatic smokiness in the scent, with a nutty twist to the earthy, full-bodied flavor, a little astringent and sweet on the finish.
