Bio Zhu Cha alias Gunpowder

Chinese green tea grown on tea plantations in Guizhou Province within a controlled organic farming. The leaves are rolled into regular small balls and have a rich green colour and a pleasant sweet roasted, slightly vegetal aroma. A light green infusion of delicate herbal flavour with a slight sweetness of ginseng and a trace of steamed asparagus in the aftertaste. One of the most common varieties of Chinese green tea in a noble, milder and not as smoky form as one would expect.

How to prepare Gunpowder tea

Use 5 grams of tea leaves for 0.5 litre of boiling water cooled to 80-85 °C, steep for 2–3 minutes. Feel free to experiment with steeping time, water temperature, and the amount of tea leaves. You can also read our articles on tea preparation and water quality. These tea leaves are also suitable for Asian-style preparation, which includes multiple infusions: you steep 5 grams of tea leaves per 150 ml of water that has boiled and cooled to 80-85 °C for 30 seconds and in the following three infusions, you steep the leaves for 40, 60, and 90 seconds, respectively.
