Dick Entry for “Imperial Gunpowder”
This tea comes from either China or Indonesia. It has a light, refreshing taste and a sweet aroma. Imperial Gunpowder is so called because the freshly plucked tea leaves are hand rolled in steel pans over an open fire. As the leaves are rolled they are shaped into tiny pellets or ôshotsö that ôexplodeö when boiling water is poured over them.
