Gunpowder tea is a form of Chinese tea in which each leaf has been rolled
into a small round pellet. Its English name comes from its resemblance
to grains of gunpowder. This rolling method of shaping tea is most often
applied either to dried green tea or oolong tea. . . . . . . .
. . . . . . and this particular blend was absolutely lovely.
Not overpowering or too strong, not sweet, just flavorful and smooth.
Tea in a big fat mug rather than a teacup. Why not.
Gunpowder is hardly dainty!

A special tea time this afternoon as the rain falls.
