Gunpowder green teas are produced by tightly rolling the leaves after steaming them. This produces a tea that looks like pellets of gunpowder which is how it got it’s name. When hot water is poured over the tea you can see it expand rapidly, this being a very compact tea less is needed ie: 1 spoonful instead of 2. The benefits of this form of tea is that it is tightly packed so takes up less space when transporting and it can be stored for a very long time without any significant deterioration.

Formosa Gunpowder can be drunk at any time of the day.

It’s now time to throw away the teabags and try a great taste experience. You may not believe the difference that comes with using premium tea and brewing in the old fashioned way. Just as coffee has seen a revival with millions of people changing from instants to fresh roast beans so also has tea been seeing a revival with new tea houses opening around the country, and the world.

Hot Tea brewing method

Bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Place 0.5 to1 teaspoon for each cup into the pot. Bring the water close to the boil (approx 180F or 90C) cover and allow to steep for 3 to 4 minutes – Do not remove the leaves from the pot because they can be used repeatedly until the flavour of the tea is exhausted, This makes green and white teas much cheaper per cup than it would seem. Green and white teas are normally served without milk and sugar.

We do not sell cheap tea, we sell excellent tea !!
