Gunpowder green tea got its name from the shape of its leaves, which are hand-rolled into tiny, tight balls similar to gunpowder. This variety comes from the Camellia sinensis plant and originated in China. Today, it is grown in China, Taiwan, and Sri Lanka.

With its nutty and robust flavor, you can drink this versatile tea on its own, with milk, or cold brewed.   

Gunpowder Green Tea that is rolled into the shape of small pinhead pellets and was awarded its title because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century.

It is a classic, bold and unforgettable tea with a striking taste and crisp, clear flavor.
