This tea takes its name from the particular treatment of the leaves. Rolled into tight pearls, they were mistaken for gunpowder by 16th century traders. Our blend's grey-green leaves unfurl peacefully to produce a golden tea revealing a smooth, sweet, slightly smoky flavour. A perfect tea for a quiet, contemplative pause.


100% Green Tea.


Brew a Perfect Cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teabag per cup and use freshly drawn water which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.

This is a lovely smooth tea to drink. Nicer than Sencha green tea.The lower rating is due to the supply of the teabag from Whittards in it\\s different forms. Unfortunately, at this moment, it seems to be only available in a box of 25, individually wrapped teabags, rather than a box of 50 teabags, for the same price. The box of 50 Sencha teabags is always available on this site. I know the 50 teabag Gunpowder version does exist. They are never available in the shops and the sales assistants usually directed me to the website. When it makes its sporadic appearance I usually buy in bulk to ensure I don\'t run out and I\'m not being forced to pay more than double for this tea.Very disappointing.Come on Whittards...sort this out !!!
