A great Pekoe gunpowder with a refreshingly cool heady combination, all natural minty fresh flavouring and a sweetish finish.
The best tea we have found to use is Pekoe Gunpowder from the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Once immersed in water, the pellets gracefully open to reveal a full leaf.
Gunpowder teas typically have a dark coppery green colour, and produce a pale yellow green infusion, with a smooth slightly smoky cup and a sweetish finish.
The tea is highly receptive to the addition of our natural flavourings and produces a very satisfying infusion.
An absolute delight, the characteristically intense flavour of the herb infuses sweet minty notes that blend beautifully with the tea's mellow and slightly smoky profile.
