This is truly a classic green tea. It was the tea of choice in Colonial America, and one of the teas thrown overboard at the Boston Tea Party! The tiny hand-rolled leaves appear as small grey-green pellets, which brew into pale, light green liquor with delicate flavor and a slight gunpowder aroma. This tea has been around fro centuries out of China and has lots of great flavor. This comes in a 4-ounce resealable tin of loose tea leaves.
