Hand-Rolled Tea Leaves That “Explode” With Flavor
Our organic Gunpowder Green Tea offers a tantalizing taste adventure, unlike anything you’ve experienced. Just Organic Tea is excited to make this unique green tea preparation available to our customers.
These distinctive tea leaves are steamed, rolled, and dried into compact pellets to help them retain their characteristic dark, slightly smoky flavor. Add hot water and watch the pellets unfurl into long green tea streamers bursting with goodness.
Also called “pearl tea,” this product brews a deep yellow color. Caffeine content is lower than black teas, as is the case with all green tea varieties. Enjoy a bold yet delicate green tea experience with our organic Gunpowder Green Tea.
Origin Of Gunpowder Green Tea
This is a delicious tea with a strange name. It gets the designation due to the tea pellets’ resemblance to gunpowder grains. That and the “explosive” brewing experience align to create the perfect name.
Gunpowder Green Tea is one of the oldest green tea preparations, dating back over a thousand years. The dried, compact pellets preserve the tea’s flavor better than other methods and create a visual feast as they brew. It has been enjoyed by royalty and common folk alike throughout its history, and now this unique green tea experience can be yours.
You’ll discover only the finest green tea leaves in our Gunpowder Green Tea. Nothing else is added or removed.
Brewing a lovely cup of Gunpowder Green Tea isn’t difficult. Simply follow these steps to enjoy your tea piping hot and full of flavor:
- Heat fresh, filtered water to 160° F / 71° C
- Add 1 teaspoon of tea to an infuser, per 8 oz. water
- Pour the heated water into the mug
- Steep for 1-2 minutes
- Strain tea leaves, or take out of the infuser
- Sip and enjoy your tea!
*Note that temperature and steep time are critical. Green tea that’s steeped for too long or at too high a temperature can develop a bitter flavor.
Benefits Of Gunpowder Green Tea
Gunpowder Green Tea promotes an alert, calm focus that’s great for people that feel coffee is too caffeinated. This green tea variety has slightly more caffeine than regular green tea due to its preparation, making it a great alternative to more highly-caffeinated black teas.
Improves General Health
You’ll find a treasure-trove of antioxidants and polyphenols in Gunpowder Green Tea. Antioxidants scour the body, cleaning away dangerous free-radicals while reducing oxidative stress. Polyphenols have been shown to boost the immune system to help prevent infections. Studies have shown a direct link between both sets of compounds and a marked reduction of chronic disease risk factors.
Relieves Digestive Distress
Gunpowder Green Tea is also chock-full of another beneficial set of compounds — catechins. These are effective against chronic inflammation, particularly in the gut, and show promise in controlling a range of conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, constipation, and cramping.
Promotes Weight Loss
While the science is still young, early research has shown that green tea drinkers lose more weight more readily than people that don’t enjoy a cup. The benefit seems twofold. Natural appetite suppressants in Gunpowder Green Tea reduce your urge to snack while the caffeine, catechins, and theanine present in the brew boost your metabolism. So enjoy a lovely cup of green tea, and get healthier and happier while you do it!
