Rose Green Tea is a delicate infusion that uses quality Gunpowder Tea adorned with beautiful rose petals. It is the perfect example of a beverage that looks as good as it tastes. When brewed, this aromatic blend exudes an elegant aroma that entices the palate. Its taste, meanwhile, is, put simply, exquisite. There is nothing quite like it.
About Gunpowder Tea
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. These tasting notes are, of course, in addition to the floralness of rose petals that make up our wholesome, nutritious, alluring Rose Green Tea.
The Chinese first produced Gunpowder Green Tea , also known as "Pearl Tea" or "Bead Tea", during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE). Today, provinces making it include Zhejiang, Guangdong, Anhui, Hunan and Fujian. There is also Formosa Gunpowder, which comes from Taiwan. Then there is Moroccan Mint Tea, which is an infusion made with Chinese leaves and peppermint.
About Rose Petals
Rose petals come from a plant botanically known as Rosa, better known as Rose. The plant, in turn, belongs to the Rosaceae family. It produces rosebuds that consist of four to five petals, with each petal divided into two distinct lobes.
We blend these petals into our Rose Green Tea, and also use them in our Rose Herbal Tea. Furthermore, we have a Rose Buds Tea.
Fossil evidence of roses dates back some 35 million years. Asia, in particular, has long had a close association with the plant. In Chinese, Indian and Middle-eastern cuisine, rose petals are a common ingredient.
In Egypt, records suggest that Cleopatra (69-30 BCE) went as far as to use rose petals as an aphrodisiac! Centuries later, Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) recommended using rose petals to heal musket wounds. He even instructed his officers to carry rose petals into battle!

Rose Green Tea Benefits
Rose petals and Tea don't just work together when it comes to taste. No. They are indeed well-suited to each other when it comes to health benefits, too! The petals found in this Tea can improve women's health. They can offer relief from cramping, as well as balance moods during menstruation.
Furthermore, rose petals contain high levels of Vitamin C, which can support the immune system. Gunpowder Tea, meanwhile, contains Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). This antioxidant can combat free radicals in the body. This can ultimately reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes.
