Aroma Green Gunpowder
Green Gunpowder tea is unfermented China Tea. The leaves of this tea have been curled when dried. When brewed they will unfold to show the leaf as it was when first picked. This tea is very light in colour with earthy notes giving this green tea a bit more flavour. Although the grade is a large leaf the colour is very pale and shouldn’t be made too strong.
It takes the name Gunpowder because the British named it after its resemblance to gunpowder gains once it has been individually rolled although traditionally hand rolled machines do the work in modern times. High quality gunpowder has smaller rolled pellets with a shiny finish.
Did you know that Green tea is the most popular tea consumed in China. It has been associated with many health benefits, as it contains flavonoids, which help the body release toxins.
