J.A. Braithwaite Ltd. Gunpowder Green Tea Loose Leaf
J.A. Braithwaite Ltd is the oldest shop in the city of Dundee and has been selling fine teas and coffees since 1868, moving to its Castle Street premises in 1932.
They still roast their beans in the shop following a traditional family recipe and they have a choice of over 100 teas and 30 coffees. Walking in to the shop is like taking a blissful step back in time.
Gunpowder Green Tea is withered, steamed, rolled and then dried. This process makes the tea look like gunpowder but preserves the delicate tea so it is less vulnerable to damage and retains its flavour and aroma.
In store you can purchase loose leaf tea in your own re-usable containers or you can take it home in one of our paper bags and decant into your own container.
Purchases online will be delivered in a sealed, recyclable, paper bag and we recommend placing it in an air tight container.
The best before date will be marked on your package.
