Gunpowder tea is a traditional Chinese tea that has a bold, smoky flavor with hints of nuttiness and a slightly bitter finish. It is named for the method in which the tea is made, as it has a tightly rolled, pellet-like appearance, and its robust taste profile that stands up well to multiple steepings. The smoky flavor and aroma come from the way the tea leaves are roasted, giving it a distinct character that sets it apart from other green teas. Overall, gunpowder green tea is a strong and flavorful tea, perfect for those looking for a tea with a little more kick.

Green tea, like all teas, is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are picked, withered, and then heated to lock in the freshness, vibrant taste, and green color. Because of this very short processing time, green tea has a higher concentration of chlorophyll, polyphenols, and antioxidants than other tea types. For this reason, green tea has earned a reputation over the past 5,000 years for its health benefits.
Polyphenols are compounds that have been linked to a host of health benefits such as bolstering immune systems and reducing the formation of certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases. Polyphenols are found primarily in plants and notably in very high concentrations in green tea. These potent compounds are best known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help us live our healthiest lives possible.
Green tea is also rich in L-Theanine, an amino acid associated with improved mood and focus, as well as reducing stress and anxiety-like symptoms.
