  • Details
    Gunpowder Green Tea is a stronger green tea from China with a distinctive nutty / oak taste. It makes a darker green color tea. Legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size, and style. They are then rolled into very small tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favored because of this characteristic. Chinese exporters recommend gunpowder for iced tea, flavored with lemon and sugar. Gunpowder tea is also very popular in Morocco where the leaves are boiled and mint and sugar are added. Gunpowder is more dense than other teas so if you are making a teapot full you only require one or two teaspoons. Chinese researchers have found that Gunpowder tea is high in fluoride, and is known to reduce cavities. They say that the human body requires 1-2 milligrams of fluoride a day. Ten grams of Gunpowder tea (enough to make 3 cups of strong tea) can supply this amount. For the best brew, our Gunpowder Green Tea should steep in steaming water for 1-4 minutes.
