EXPLOSIVE tea classic!
Gun Powder is a famous Chinese green tea with long history. Its production started at the end of the 7th century. Tea leaves are rolled into tight balls, that resemble gun powder and earn the tea its name. Also the taste lives up to the name. China Gun Powder’s taste is strong and little smokey. Ready tea has a beautiful amber colour.
After harvesting, tea leaves are steamed before molding. Steaming stops the oxidation process and ensures beautiful green colour. Thanks to tight rolling, gun powder tea’s flavours last much longer than in unrolled tea. Rolling also makes the tea more durable.
Green tea has lots of flavonoids and L-theanine, which help to reduce stress, make you feel relaxed and enhance your cognitive thinking. Green tea has also shown to be beneficial to digestion. Gun Powder has more caffeine than other green teas so it is more stimulative. Gun Powder is a popular drink among athletes.
