Pinhead Gunpowder China Green Tea

A steamed green tea with a strong flavor associated with gunpowder teas. The green tea flavor tends to be a little nutty.

The leaves for Pinhead Gunpowder are only plucked during April and May when the quality of the green leaf is at its highest. The leaves are steamed and tightly rolled in a time honored process. When preparing this tea, part of the ritual is to take two pinches of Pinhead Gunpowder and drop them into a porcelain cup so you hear the jingle and tinkle of the leaves hitting the sides. Boiling water causes them to open up like flowers and sink slowly to the bottom in graceful patterns which add a dimension of visual pleasure to tea drinking. This gunpowder produces a reasonably strong dark-green brew with a memorable fragrance. Gunpowder is denser than other teas so if you are making a teapot full you only require one or two teaspoons for a teapot.

Chinese researchers have found that gunpowder tea is high in fluoride and known to reduce cavities. They say that a human body requires 1-2 milligrams of fluoride a day. Ten grams of gunpowder tea (enough to make 3 cups of strong tea) can supply this amount.
