Flavoured Gunpowder Tea in this Blend
Gunpowder Green Tea is a Tea made from leaves shaped into small, round pellets. These pellets unfurl before one's eyes when brewed, creating a beverage noted for its grassiness and earthiness. It originates from the Zhejiang province, south of Shanghai, China.
However, other provinces create it, too, including Guangdong, Anhui, Hunan and Fujian. And there is also Formosa Gunpowder, a Taiwanese type.
But why Gunpowder Tea? There are a few theories, although no one knows with any certainty.
The first theory is that an English clerk gave it this name after seeing the strange shape of the leaves. According to this tale, he thought Gunpowder Tea resembled the appearance of lead shots used in muskets.
Another theory suggests that the word "gunpowder", when spoken in the correct dialect, sounds like the Mandarin Chinese phrase for "freshly brewed".
Finally, some believe that the name derives from the ‘crackling’ sound it makes while infusing with hot water. But what about varieties such as Passion Fruit, Guava and Mango Green Tea? Well, that’s a different story altogether.
Contrary to popular belief, Flavoured Tea is far from a new phenomenon. Indeed, the idea of such a beverage dates back almost as far as the discovery of Tea. People of the time used to add herbs, fruits and spices to these brews.
Passion Fruit, Guava and Mango Green Tea, on the other hand, is, in fact, a more recent occurrence. What it lacks in age, however, it makes up for in character.
