Gunpowder tea is a type of green tea that originated in China and is known for its unique appearance and flavour. The tea leaves are rolled into small, pellet-like shapes that resemble gunpowder, hence the name. The tea has a mild, slightly sweet flavour with a hint of bitterness, and a delicate aroma. When brewed, the leaves unfurl to reveal a light green color, and the tea is often described as having a smooth, silky texture. Gunpowder tea is often enjoyed as a refreshing and relaxing beverage, and is popular in many parts of the world for its health benefits and flavourful taste.
