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.

Suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans & Lactose Intolerants.

Brew a Perfect Cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) 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.
