A popular pan-fired green tea, gunpowder green has a slightly baked, crisp, and vegetal green flavor. Gunpowder green, called zhu cha (pearl tea) in China, is preferred by many who have switched from coffee to green tea for health benefits. Steep for 2-3 minutes depending on desired strength. Add honey or your choice of sweetener, or none at all. Make a quart or more of tea and drink throughout the day or over several days. Drink hot, at room temperature, or iced. Avoid boiling the water with the tea leaves in it. Consider using a French press or easy to clean loose tea device (like those we offer in brewing accessories). Full of antioxidants, tea has been proven to lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Many people drink tea for its ability to assist with weight loss.
