Gunpowder green tea is a machine rolled green tea that is pan-fired and has a slightly baked, crisp, and vegetal green flavor. This is a great basic green tea and our most popular green tea. Gunpowder, which is also called zhu cha, is favored by many who have switched from coffee to green tea for health benefits.
Use 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 oz of water. Steep in just boiled water, around 175°F, for 3-5 minutes. Green tea needs a lower temperature than black teas. If you had a cup of green tea that was too bitter, chances are you used water that was too hot.
