It’s fireworks every time.

Our Gunpowder comes from the Wuyuan region in the Jiangxi province. In Chinese, Gunpowder tea is called zhū chá – “pearl tea”. With its leaves rolled into pellets, it is probably the most famous Chinese green tea. The origin of today’s name “Gunpowder” is not very clear: on the one hand, the dark balls look a little like gunpowder. In addition, when immersed in hot water, they “explode” as the leaf unfolds. Another explanation is the slightly smoky taste of the tea. It is also possible that the English name “Gunpowder” comes from the Mandarin-Chinese term for “freshly brewed” – “gāng pào de” –, which sounds like “gunpowder”. You would be amiss not to experience this taste explosion for yourself – try it!
