#583.8 Gunpowder Green Tea Bags
Net Wt: 8oz (227g)
Approx. 100 tea bags per ½ pound.
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 tea bag 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.
The natural cellulose fibers are compostable/biodegradable, however, upon completion of composting, a residue of synthetic fibers (Polyefin) will remain. This prevents this paper from meeting the EN13432 requirements for composability. So most of it will break down easily, but the fibers will not entirely.
