Explosive high-grade gunpowder green tea with a refreshing spearmint kick.
What it is?
Explosive high-grade gunpowder green tea with a refreshing spearmint kick. High-quality, Chinese gunpowder, finest American mint and an intense natural crisped mint flavour combine to a special taste experience.
Why we love it
The ultimate in freshness (a close 2nd to a cold shower). The tiny gunpowder green tea pellets combine with invigorating mint leaves to create a refreshing beverage that can be enjoyed both steaming hot and ice cold.
Where it’s from
Premier green tea produced from the Duyun county, which sits towards the south of the Guizhou province, China, the better teas come from highest up the hill, with the greater preponderance of mists and cooler daytime temperatures. Spearmint is native to Europe and southern temperate Asia, extending from America in the west to southern China in the east.How our drink hits the senses
Smooth and mellow, as soon as the water begins to infuse, the green leaves share a freshly cut grass scent and the minty freshness continues to excite and clear the senses.
The taste journey
Each green tea leaf is rolled into a compact pellet, giving it the appearance of an old fashioned lead shot, hence the famous name. We like to think it also refers to the tiny minty explosion that happens on your taste buds with every sip. A golden, green tea liquor is created as the pellet unfurls, infused with mint for a refreshing taste.
