About Gunpowder Tea
The history of Gunpowder Tea dates back several centuries. However, much of its story remains a mystery. No one can agree on how this beverage acquired its name, although there are a few fascinating theories. One suggestion is that an English clerk believed that the young, rolled, pellet-like leaves resembled lead shots used in muskets.
Another theory is that it stems from the Mandarin Chinese phrase for “freshly brewed”. Spoken in the correct dialect, this term sounds remarkably similar to the English word, “Gunpowder”. Finally, some swear that, upon brewing, this Tea makes cracking sounds identical to the ‘crack’ of a musket. The chances are we’ll never know for sure.
What most agree on, however, is that Gunpowder Tea originated from the Chinese Zhejiang province during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE). Even today, Zhejiang has maintained its reputation for producing outstanding Gunpowder Tea. Meanwhile, other provinces known for creating it include Guangdong, Anhui, Hunan, and Fujian.
