Chinese Gunpowder Temple of Heaven, or 平水珠茶 (Ping Shui Zhu Cha) is green tea that is traditionally grown and produced in Zhejiang province. It is unique in flavor and appearance, and instantly recognizable by its shiny, glossy, tightly rolled pellet shape. This is achieved by drying the tea leaves in rolling drums, causing the constantly rotated leaves to take on their signature spherical shape. Our Gunpowder Temple of Heaven tea is premium quality - its tightly rolled and shiny appearance are a clear indication of its superior quality! Producing a softer aroma than standard gunpowder offerings, our Gunpowder Temple of Heaven is less bitter than other gunpowder teas. Our Gunpowder Temple of Heaven has a gentle green aroma that is slightly smoky, once steeped its infusion has a bold, thick and strong flavor, with a smoky flavor note and an aftertaste that is slightly coppery. This is a green tea classic that is perfect to enjoy at any time of the day!
