Gunpowder tea is one of the better-known steamed green teas from China and has a very distinctive look and taste. It follows the traditional method of green tea production: it is withered, steamed and dried; but it has an additional rolling process which gives the leaves their distinct “pellet” shape that Gunpowder is so famous for.
This famous Chinese tea is known for its characteristic leaf shape where the leaves have been rolled prior to drying to form loose pearl of pure green tea. This method protects against breakage of the leaf and helps to preserve more flavour and aroma than some flat leaf varieties.
When brewed, the leaves produce a dark-golden liquor and slightly sweet aroma. To taste, this tea is a strong, delicious and refreshing cup with a delicate, almost fruity finish with tones of apple and grape.
Health benefits of Chinese gunpowder Green Tea Leaves
Some of the health benefits of Gunpowder green tea have been found to be due the high level of polyphenols it contains. Polyphenols are antioxidants that neutralize free radicals preventing them causing damage to cells. Green teas also contain fluoride known to prevent build up of the plaque which can cause tooth decay. Gunpowder tea has an astringent quality, which may help with healing wounds and controlling bleeding. World’s Healthiest Foods cites a study which concluded that drinking green tea for at least one year on a regular basis had up to 65% lower blood pressure levels than those who didn’t drink green tea during that period. The group that benefited the most in terms of low blood pressure were those who drank at least 2.5 cups each day.
