Excellent both hot and iced, this tea is perfect for a seaside picnic, or a cozy cup of tea by the fire.
Tea Sommelier's Notes
In the cup: The flavor of peppermint comes through gently, and combines with Gunpowder beautifully to produce a mellow, slightly smoky profile.
In the mood: This tea is refreshing over ice. It would make an excellent addition to your picnic basket. Also a soothing after-dinner tonic to help with digestion.
In the know: Taiwan produces the world’s finest gunpowder teas. Making gunpowder tea is a complicated affair which involves pan-firing at precise temperatures, rolling, cutting, and drying.
In the brewing vessel: 1-2 Tsp. (1.5-2g)/ 8 oz. water(240ml)/ Temperature: 160-175 F(65-75 C): Crab Eyes (Please see “Five Stages of Bringing Water to a Boil.”)/ Steep 2-3 minutes. Can infuse up to three times with diminishing returns on the mint.
