Uncle Lee's Tea - Premium Gunpowder Green Tea Bulk - 5.29 oz.

Uncle Lee's Tea Premium Gunpowder Green Tea Bulk.  Uncle Lee's Gunpowder Green Tea in Bulk derives its name from the shape of the finished tea leaves.  Legend has it that the name "Gunpowder" was given by an imaginative English clerk who thought that the dark green tea leaves, rolled into round pellets looked like gunpowder.  In china that name for gunpowder tea "pearl tea".  Rolling the leaves has a beneficial effect on the quality of the tea.  Not only does it force to the surface flavorful juices that otherwise would remain in the leaf, but the pellet retains its shape during firing and keeps its freshness longer than other loose leaf teas.

Uncle Lee's Gunpowder Tea has a dark golden color, roasted or toasted taste with a strong aftertaste lingering in the front palette, and a strong roasted or roasted aroma.  When brewed, the teas unfold into large leaves.  Their Gunpowder Green Tea is rich in natural fluoride, calcium and anti-oxidants and has only 20 to 30 mg of caffeine per cup.

Their North American headquarter has been in operation since 1988. Currently, their tea products can be found on the shelves of many national retailers as well as direct tea distributors in both the United States and Canada.

Uncle Lee's Tea Specialty

They are the first tea manufacturer to introduce green tea into the North American market and has since then been playing an important role in the manufacturing of quality Green Tea.

Pursuing the excellence of tea manufacturing and responding to market demand, they began their own line of Chai Teas which comes in four unique flavors as well as 100% organic ingredients.

Quality Control
When it comes to tea manufacturing, the word "quality" is their number one priority. To set their selves apart from their competitors, they continue to carry on the tradition of Ten Ren's quality tea without sacrificing packaging of tea bags. Their conservative view of tea manufacturing has been constantly reminding us to only bring the best to the consumers. Don't take their words for it, their products are 100% Star-K "Kosher" certified for quality and freshness -- click here to verify.

Their manufacturing is based one simple principal -- quality. They incorporate industry's highest technology and standards when it comes to preparing their tea into tea bags. In logistics, they always utilize the best method of transportation to move their tea from the plants in China to ensure 100% freshness when they arrive.

The fresh water used to make this tea should not be boiling but should be about 160 to 180 degrees F or 90 to 100 degrees C.  Use about one teaspoon of tea for every 8 ounces (150 ml) of water.  Steeping time should be anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes depending on desired strength and quantity of tea.  As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be.  When preparing this tea, the leaves can be used multiple times, until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.  the use of a covered glass or ceramic cup is sometimes recommended for steeping in order to appreciate the tea leaves.  A stainless steel "tea ball" is also recommended for steeping the tea.  each canister of Uncle Lee's gunpowder green tea will yield approximately 50 to 75 servings.
