GUNPOWDER GREEN TEA, LOOSE TEA, 1 lb
On clearance - near or past its best by date. Harney and Sons tea does not have an expiration date. They do put lot numbers on their tea for production and also suggested “best by dates.” They recommend the product be consumed within two years of that date, simply to ensure the best flavor.
This is the green tea that many of us and our parents grew up with. Many of us crave its roasted and assertive flavors. It is made from the tougher leaves. These leaves are fixed green and then fired for an extended period in a hot rotating oven.
The leaves are green and tightly rolled, like something that might shoot out of a musket.
