Gunpowder Green Tea


Gunpowder Tea

Gunpowder Green Tea dates back to the Tang Dynasty. In China, it is also known as Pearl Tea. It is one of the most popular chinese teas for export.

Gunpowder Tea is a form of Chinese tea mostly made in the Zhejiang Province of China. The name Gunpowder comes from the unique way in which each individual tea leaf has been rolled into a round little ball. The little ball resembles a small pellet. The English name "Gunpowder" is because the little pellets looked like the gunpowder pellets that were used in canons.

Originally, the leaves were individually hand rolled, a very labour intensive job but today, most Gunpowder tea is machine rolled for simplicity and the lower the cost of production.

The most prized Gunpowder Teas are still handrolled and very rare and expensive.

When shopping for Gunpowder Tea, look for shiny pellets. This will ensure that you get fresh gunpowder.

Brew just like other loose leaf teas with an infuser.
