About The Brand
James Ashby, a traditional family man, established the Ashbys® Tea firm in London in 1850. Importing and packaging only the highest quality teas from the most prestigious tea growing areas of the world, Ashbys® Tea has become a standard among fine English teas. Imported exclusively by Coffee Masters, Ashbys® Tea offers quality, freshness and packaging that reflects the heritage and reputation that the English have come to expect of a great tea.
Our Ashbys® teas are packaged in 2lb bulk bags and start with the finest blend of pure green teas from China. All tea leaves come from the same plant, the Camellia Sinensis, but what makes the difference is how they are processed. To produce a green tea, harvested leaves from Camellia Sinensis which immediately undergo a process of firing or steaming. This action stops enzymatic activity that leads to oxidation (darkening) of the leaves. The moisture in the steaming process produces a more assertive green, bright and crisp character, while firing with dry heat generally produces a smooth, toasty, vegetal, and sometimes smoky profile.
This gunpowder tea has a full body with clean earthy flavor. Gunpowder tea gets its name from the appearance of the leaves, which are rolled tightly into small, round pellets ranging from Pinhead to Pea Leaf. The smaller the roll, the more expensive the tea. The tight roll helps Gunpowder remain fresher, longer than other teas.
