This marvellous top-of-the-range Yunnan Black Gunpowder tea is a twist on the more well known Green Gunpowder. Our Black Gunpowder is hand rolled from the finest grade Yunnan tea, with each leaf being rolled into a tight "curl". A measure of its quality is the high percentage of gold curls which indicate that a high number of the finest tips have been used. On the palate, the Black Gunpowder has a rich and smooth finish of mild astringency and moderate tannins. As with all our premium black teas this tea may be enjoyed with a little milk and or sugar, or savoured on its own.
