Green Gunpowder Tea
Crisp and fresh golden liquor with a slightly smoky finish.
Green Gunpowder tea dates back to the Tang dynasty (618–907). It is believed to take its English name from the fact that the tea resembles gunpowder pellets used for cannons. Another theory is that it may come from the mandarin chinese term gāng paò dè, which means "freshly brewed," and sounds like the english word "gunpowder”. Notes of smoke and chocolate are encapsulated with a characteristic tea undertone.
