And yet Gunpowder Tea still offers a “bang” of sorts, albeit in a very different way. Many believe that, when brewed, Gunpowder Tea (and, in turn, Cherry Green Tea) creates a crackling sound and as such, has been named accordingly. But this is just one theory.
Another theory is that the overall appearance of Gunpowder Tea, which is made from tea leaves and young buds rolled into small, round pellets, resembles the lead shots used in muskets. We’ll probably never know for sure why Gunpowder Tea is called “Gunpowder Tea”. Why Cherry Green Tea is called “Cherry Green Tea”, on the other hand, is indisputable; its taste alone tells you everything you need to know.

Health Benefits: As well as lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol in the body, Cherry Green Tea can improve cardiovascular health in other ways, too. Reduced levels of nitric oxide (NO) in the endothelium lining of blood vessels is one of the leading causes of atherosclerosis, a chronic disease related to cardiovascular health. Flavonoids found in Gunpowder Green Tea, meanwhile, are believed to improve endothelial function and flow-mediated dilation (FMD). According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Gunpowder Green Tea improves bioactivity of the endothelium-derived vasodilator, (‘vasodilation’ refers to the widening of blood vessels) nitric oxide, by enhancing its synthesis.
Furthermore, Cherry Green Tea should be considered for improving the immune system, especially when you’re already feeling under the weather. A 2007 study published in the Journal of American College of Nutrition has the proof. According to the published research paper, participants of the study were split into two groups, the first group of which consumed Green Tea capsules while the second group was given a placebo. Both groups were instructed to take either their Green Tea capsules or the placebo twice daily for three months. It was concluded that the Green Tea capsule group was 32% less likely to experience symptoms of cold or flu, while levels of illness-fighting gamma-delta T cells were also higher compared to the placebo group.
