Organic Gunpowder Special Grade, known in China as Pearl Tea, has leaves that are tightly rolled into small pellets. These shiny, grey-green, hand-rolled leaves typically make a strong, somewhat astringent cup, with a smoky edge from high firing. During the steeping process, the pellets gracefully unfurl and create a robust, dark-green tea. This Gunpowder has a pleasant aroma and aftertaste, without the harshness frequently found in some grades.
