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.
Cutty Sark Black Tea is a marriage of two of China's most famous types of black tea; a rich black tea from the Yunnan province, which with its strength and caramel sweetness partners perfectly with the more complex flavours of the Keemun tea from the Anhui province of China. This is simply delicious on its own, or with a dash of milk and ideal with something sweet, perhaps some biscuits, cakes or pastries.
