Gunpowder Green Tea 100grams

£4.99 £3.99

To say our very own Gunpowder Green Tea is mesmerising to watch as it brews is no understatement. Notably unusual in appearance, this beverage – which consists of small, Green Tea pellets – will beautifully unfurl before your eyes when placed in boiling water. The infusion itself, meanwhile, is equally delicious, and is one of The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company’s most popular Gunpowder Teas.

Originating from the Zhejiang Province, south of Shanghai, China, this tea’s incredible flavour boasts a fascinating and complex earthy-smoky taste – the like of which is very uncommon in any other types of Green Tea.

If this wasn’t enough, Gunpowder Tea has also been praised for its outstanding health benefits which include improved cardiovascular health, relief from digestive issues, and even a reduced risk of Type II diabetes! From its look to its taste; its aroma to its beneficial potential; Gunpowder Green Tea is the perfect beverage for just about anything! 

In its native China, Gunpowder Tea is known as ‘zhū chá’, which can be translated to literally mean ‘pearl tea’ or ‘bead tea’. Meanwhile, there are many theories surrounding the origin of Gunpowder Teas English name. The most common claim is that when it was first created, its overall appearance resembled the gunpowder pellets used for muskets. Another theory suggests that the term ‘gunpowder’ was applied to the brew upon its first infusion, when the rolled Green Tea leaves ‘crackled’ and ‘exploded’ in boiling water.
