The Organic Pinhead Gunpowder Tea Experience: Silk Road adventures
This bold, dark, organic green tea harks back to the ancient trade routes which first brought it from China to the Arab world. Mysterious, daring and bittersweet, it’s an ideal choice for those looking for a green tea that’s off the beaten path.
Tasting Notes: powerful, roasty, vegetal
This formidable tea is characterized by its muted green and artfully curled leaves, its roasty, toasty aroma, its thick mouthfeel and its nutty, green, moderately astringent flavor. It finishes with a “Pow!”—a bold astringency that makes this green tea especially food-friendly.
Ingredients: Organic Chinese green tea.
- 1 tsp Per Cup

Savoring Your Experience:
We recommend pairing our Organic Pinhead with equally bold, flavorful foods. As the base tea in Moroccan Mint Tea blends, it is especially suited to Moroccan and Middle Eastern fare, such as kebabs, falafels and tabbouleh. You can also use it to make your own organic, fresh Moroccan Mint Tea. Simply add a few fresh, organic mint leaves to your infusion as you brew, then sweeten to taste with sugar or honey.
Unlike many green teas, Organic Pinhead can be re-steeped several times. Its flavor softens with each subsequent infusion.
Our Organic Pinhead tea is an especially large and aromatic version of so-called "China Gunpowder Green Tea", a tea named for its bold character and its gunpowder-like shape.
