Whittard’s Gunpowder Green Tea comes from the Chinese province of Zhejiang. The leaves are formed into distinctive tightly rolled pellets that look so much like gunpowder that in the 16th century traders mistook them for the real thing. 

This is a high-quality gunpowder green tea with a shiny green appearance. With its vibrant green leaves and distinctive sweet and smoky overtones, it is perfect for drinking throughout the day.

Whittard’s superior tea pyramids are made from sheer bio-degradable mesh. This allows the whole leaves to infuse perfectly in your cup, offering the refined taste you get from tea leaves but with all the convenience of a teabag.

Ingredients

Brew the perfect cup

For the perfect cup of Zhejiang Gunpowder Green Tea, use one pyramid per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes or according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a bit of a traditionalist, so I tend to go for classic black tea blends like Earl Grey, or single origin varieties like Ceylon or Assam. Lapsang Souchong is a treat with hot cross buns.”

Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…
