This is a strong green tea bursting with powerful flavours. Slightly buttery, very grassy and wonderful green olive overtones.
Gunpowder Green Tea
Yong Xi Huo Qing
This tea grows in the remote mountains near Huang Mountain, where the tea pickers walk about two hours to reach the rocky tea plantation. The tea has a unique production process where the leaves are hand fried continuously for 20 hours, with both hands ‘scrolling’ the tea. This gives it its unique shape, described as “gunpowder”. Prime minister Zhou used this tea to host President Nixon in 1970’s.
