description

Discover this variety of the famous Chinese green tea. To produce this tea, the leaves are dried, softened with steam and then rolled before being dried to prevent fermentation. It is a process common to many green teas, but the particularly tight and dark pellets of this variant are what give it its famous "Gunpowder" name. It has a balanced and clean taste, but requires a correct preparation to avoid bitterness.

preparation

250ml of fresh water (filtered if necessary)
water temperature 80̊ C
infusion time, 3 minutes
light caffeine
may be consumed morning and afternoon

notes:

To prevent bitterness, it is important to have the right tea-to-water ratio (1g of tea x 100cl of water), the correct temperature (around 90-95 degrees C), and steeping times (maximum 3 minutes). The traditional Chinese technique involves saturating the teapot with tea leaves, and a brief infusion of just 20 seconds, though it's not a very widespread method in the West.
