  • Details

    The Superior Gunpowder Green Tea blend from English Tea Store is a stronger green tea from China with a distinctive nutty/oak taste and a darker green color tea.

    Legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by an young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size and style. They are then rolled into very small tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favored because of this characteristic. Chinese exporters recommend gunpowder for iced tea flavored with lemon and sugar. Gunpowder tea is also very popular in Morocco where the leaves are boiled and mint and sugar are added.

    Gunpowder is more dense than other teas so if you are making a teapot full, you'll only require one or two teaspoons for a teapot. Chinese researchers have found that gunpowder tea is high in fluoride and known to reduce cavities. They say that a human body requires 1-2 milligrams of fluoride a day. Ten grams of gunpowder tea (enough to make 3 cups of strong tea) can supply this amount.

      superior bulk gunpowder green tea

      Posted by KARIN L REITZ on Aug 22nd 2020

      I've ordered this tea one time before, and I liked it so much, I ordered it again. It's a stronger tea so I don't have to use as much as some others. I ordered osprey gunpowder tea at the same time which is milder. I use both at different times depending on my mood and need. I use the superior when I want a bolder flavor and a "kick".

      Posted by Jay Therien on Jul 29th 2020

      I have been drinking tea for more than sixty five years. My usual preference is black with no adornments. Once in a while, with a simple breakfast, a robust green tea hits the spot. This is such a tea. Bold and flavorful.

      I always order my green tea from The ETS. I find the quality of the gunpowder green tea has the tartness I prefer. I know I was running low so when the opportunity presented itself I ordered. I still have approximately 1 month remaining on my previous order.

      Use for blends

      Posted by GK Tea on May 31st 2019

      Make a good cup of green tea but I tend to blend it with black teas like Irish breakfast or Yorkshire Gold for a smooth cup of tea. Once brewed, leaves are much larger so a little goes a long way

      Mild, smooth, soothing, and enjoyable tea. I used a very small amount for brewing when I tried this tea. I really enjoyed it!
