Gunpowder Tea is Chinese green tea named for the way the tea leaves are rolled into small pellets, which look like old-fashioned gunpowder. Rolling the tea leaves helps preserve its freshing flavor, produce an aromatic, light liquor which opens with a crisp astringency and develops into a well-rounded sweetness with a lingering, mellow finish.
High in antioxidants and vitamin C, Green Tea is especially known for its outstanding quality and its exquisite fragrance and mellowness. This is due to the fact that it is frown in mountain areas of a high altitude where long seasons of fog, appropriate temperature and fertile soil provide ideal conditions. Moist and wet, the buds and leaves acquire an innate luxuriance which makes full growth and rich flavor.
