Gunpowder tea gets its name from the characteristics of the leaves, which are rolled into small, greyish-green pellets resembling old-fashioned gunpowder. The appearance is important, in that the smallest, most tightly rolled leaves of the top grades have much more flavor than the more irregular, open roll of the lower grades. Gunpowder is a highly processed tea, with long periods of rolling followed by extensive grading for size, shape and density. The best organic lots come from central China, and have a full body, pungent flavor and slightly smoky aroma.
Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 2/3rds spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 30 seconds (200° F) before steeping tea for 3 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
