GUNPOWDER GREEN ORGANIC
A classic Chinese green tea that offers a mellow, slightly sweet brew with a touch of smokiness. Gunpowder green organic derives its name from the rolled shape of the leaf. When Europeans first came across this leaf in China, they believed it resembled the shiny granules of gunpowder. The rolled shape of gunpowder tea helps keep whole leaves intact, and thereby retain its full fragrance and flavour profile! In turn, this traditional green tea is best enjoyed without milk and sugar.
Our high-quality gunpowder green tea produces a mild yet intricate smoky flavour that boasts earthy tones and a soft mouthfeel. The small pellet-like appearance of the tea denotes its premium quality. The tea is also certified organic; this means that our tea has passed the European Union’s strict standards when it comes to quality testing for pesticide and other adverse chemicals. Like all global green teas, gunpowder tea is antioxidant-rich and nutrient-dense. The loose leaves unfurl during the brewing process and release special flavonoids and catechins like ECGC. These compounds are thought to support cardiovascular health, defend the body against free radicals, and regulate one’s cholesterol and blood pressure. A health tonic and tasty sip in one!
Love this Chinese green tea? We recommend that you also try out our aromatic lung ching grade 1 or premium Shimizu sencha. They are similar in flavour but made using higher-grade loose leaves. Alternatively, oolongs also tend to be a favourite among gunpowder green tea drinkers!
