Gunpowder green tea has been hugely popular in Britain since the 18th century and was one of the original teas brought over from China by the Cutty Sark. 

Sourced from Hunan Province, the tealeaves are pan-fried, resulting in the leaves curling up into tight pellets that bear an uncanny resemblance to the gunpowder shots of the 18th century, hence the name. 

When brewed, the delicate tealeaves will unfurl, delivering a beautifully soft and balanced green tea flavour - deliciously refreshing.
