This is the Glenn Campbell of green teas – easy to drink, like an old dependable friend you’ll want to have around on a rainy day. And this tea has been knocking around for almost as long, at a cool 1,000 years (no offence Glenn). It's the first Chinese tea to have arrived in Europe and got its name from the pellets used in cannons at the time.
The tea has a trace of sweetness which leaves a morishly dry aftertaste.
