A classic green tea where the freshest leaves are hand-picked and rolled into tiny pellets resembling gunpowder. The unique brew has a bold, smooth, smoky flavor for which it is aptly named. The brewed tea generally has a more yellowish color than most other types of green tea. 

A classic green tea where the freshest leaves are hand-picked and rolled into tiny pellets resembling gunpowder. The unique brew has a bold, smooth, smoky flavor for which it is aptly named. The brewed tea generally has a more yellowish color than most other types of green tea. Chinese Gunpowder green tea is a classic tea whose name is derived from the shape of the leaves which resemble gunpowder pellets once they have been rolled. When the tea leaves are brewed and steeped, these unique pellets "explode" or unfurl into the longer leaf. This unique tea has a bold, smooth, smoky flavor which is found to be enjoyed by many coffee lovers too. In the ancient times, the pellets used to be delicately hand-rolled, today however, gunpowder tea is machine-rolled, although some of the higher grades of the tea still continue to be hand-rolled. Rolling the leaves ensures that the leaves do not break and allows them to be stored for many years. The process of rolling also retains the flavor of the leaves. As Gunpowder tea leaves are not fermented, the antioxidants and other healthy compounds found in the leaves are retained giving you a cuppa packed full of good health!
