Description

This lightly roasted, tightly rolled green tea is named for its resemblance to actual gunpowder.  Its refreshing lemon and light vegetable flavor makes it an excellent tea for everyday brewing.  Witness the “agony of the tea leaf” as the tightly rolled leaves fitfully unfurl as they steep in hot water.  In 18th-century British America, tea was an expensive, exotic import, first popular with wealthy colonists, then with the middle classes as well.  Shelf life is 24 months.  Packaged in South Carolina.  1 ¼ oz. package makes 30 cups.
