Gunpowder Tea

I first discovered this variety of tea at a tea shop in Boston. The name was so unusual, but it refers the way that the tea leaves are cured and prepared.  There can be many different flavors of tea with this style of preparation.  The photos show that it is tightly coiled up leaves in the form of pellets.  I like the flavor of this green tea as it resembles the flavor of fresh leaves... as it seems to have preserved the most intact form (I've seen) of tea leaves revealed in the reconstituted form.
