Gunpowder Green & Mint
Gunpowder Green & Mint tea is a blend of Chinese green tea and peppermint leaves (Mentha Piperita). The green tea is from Zhejiang province in South East China. Its English name 'gunpowder' is owed to the fact that the leaves are tightly rolled into little pearls which look like pellets of gunpowder. At the end of the manufacturing process the pellets are blended with peppermint leaves.
A crisp green tea created as the pellet unfurls with a golden liquor, infused with a hint of mint to make a refreshing and clean taste.
When you smell and taste your tea, why not use the Twinings flavour wheel and see what aromas and tastes you come up with. First of all, before your nostrils come close to the tea liquor, just smell the back of your hand as this helps to cleanse your palette.
