Also called 'Black Pearls'.  Tea leaves are processed carefully by hand in the traditional way and rolled into 'pearls'.  Each 'pearl' is a shiny anthracite / very dark gunmetal colour.  

From the Chinese Province of Fujian this tea is mild, full-bodied and subtly aromatic in taste with a very slight smoky note.

Use 1 heaped teaspoon per cup and infuse for 3 - 4 minutes in just boiled water.

    Gunpowder black tea

    Posted by Lizzie Nelson on 9th Jan 2021

    This is one of my favourite teas. It has a gentle but complex flavour and is ever so slightly sweet and spicy. I'm not sure I detect smokiness but it certainly has a lovely balance of flavours. Although it isn't a typical breakfast tea it is a part of my favourite breakfast - perfect with boiled eggs and hot buttered toast. Or at any time of day... It works with or without milk, but you really don't need to add milk - there are no harsh notes to counteract. It is very reliable and also bears up well to a second brewing. Definitely recommended - try it!
