Gunpowder Temple Of Heaven Organic
The name gunpowder is known to this variety of green tea grown in the Chinese province of Zhejiang and named for its visual resemblance to gunpowder because when the leaves are harvested they are rolled in the form of balls to better maintain their properties.
Formerly this process of molding the tea leaves was done by hand and is currently carried out by specialized machinery, although there are some types of gunpowder that continue to be wrapped by hand so they are more appreciated.
In China it is also known as "pearl tea" because of its visual appearance.
Perdigones de té verde.
Hace muchos años probé estos perdigones hechos de hojas de té verde que cuando se mojan se desenrollan. Era una rareza traída de china por una amiga que no lo había vuelto a probar hasta ahora.
Es cómo lo recordaba, lo recomiendo.
