Taiwan has long been known throughout Asia as producing the best gunpowder green teas. The steamed leaves are rolled into pellets resembling gunpowder which unfurl to retake their original form. Gunpowder green tea yields a strong dark green brew with a memorable fragrance and lasting finish. Today gunpowder green tea makes up less than 1% of Americas total tea imports. Enlighten yourself as you watch the tea leaves expand and gently sink to the bottom of your cup.
