Westholme Tea Company - Gunpowder
Origin: Zhejiang Province, China
Description: During processing, the tea leaves are rolled into tight spheres said to resemble pellets of gunpowder. Processed by hand in the traditional fashion, this tea offers a refreshing, slightly roasted taste, and steeps to a yellow jade. Enjoy the tea as is or mix it with some fresh mint from your garden for a tasty green tea alternative in the Moroccan tradition.
Tasting Notes: The cup begins with a fresh and sweet aroma, almost floral, translating to the palate of the early steep. A more robust grassy taste and a high-note astringency develops as the rolled tea leaves slowly unfurl, maintaining the floral notes in the linger.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 90ºC water. Steep 3 minutes.
