We rely on simple, pure ingredients, strict organic guidelines, and an ethics-driven Fair Trade philosophy.

Gunpowder Green Tea
The centuries-old name was coined by traders impressed by the distinct flavor and shape of the leaves. We chose this unique organic Chinese green tea for its light, smoky aroma.

Our Fair Trade Certified™ organic teas meet the highest standards of both quality and social responsibility. Your purchase directly makes a difference in the lives of tea estate workers.
Tea drinking has been a healthful delight for centuries. Taking a moment to prepare a cup of tea is a simple ritual that can enhance mental clarity, create a state of serenity and promote relaxation
A truly satisfying cup of tea begins with the best water. Use cold, freshly drawn water from the purest, source available.
Allow just-boiled water to cool for several minutes. Pour over one tea bag per cup and steep for 2-3 minutes. If steeped longer, the tea may become bitter. Gunpowder Green Tea is best served without milk or sweetener.
Brewing the Perfect Cup
Brewing tea can be as complex as a Japanese tea ceremony or as simple as tossing a teabag into your favorite mug. But any way you steep it, taking a moment for yourself to prepare a cup of tea is certainly part of the rituals appeal.
We offer these basic guidelines as a place for you to begin your tea enjoyment.
A truly satisfying cup of tea begins with the best water fresh and cold from the purest source available.
For oolong and black teas, use water right off a rolling boil. Dont let the water keep boiling though, or it will lose too much oxygen and result in a flat-tasting tea.
White tea and green tea should be brewed with water that is cooler than boiling; just sit back and wait a minute or two after the water has reached a boil.
Rather than steep by color, start by following the time recommended on the package. Then, adjust the length of time according to your personal taste. Once youve found the time that works for you, follow it to ensure consistency from cup to cup. Be sure to remove the teabag after the desired time has passed. Dont just let the tea sit and continue to infuse.
For loose tea, measure out one teaspoon per cup. Be sure to choose an infuser or strainer with holes small enough to contain the leaf particles. Weve found the disposable t-sac filter papers to be an excellent option (and they can be composted).
