Gunpowder  is so called as the dry tea leaves are rolled into tight balls (zhu cha) that resemble gunpowder. One of the most popularly consumed Chinese green teas,  it has a wonderfully strong yet not overpowering aroma and a gentle astringent taste with rice-like undertones.

Gunpowder Green is so called as the dry tea leaves are rolled into tight balls that resemble gunpowder. According to legend, the name derives from an occasion when a British merchant ship was tricked into purchasing the tea instead of gunpowder.  With a fresh, rounded taste evoking paddy fields, gunpowder tea is a very good remedy for stomach complaints.
