It does look like swamp water if you have the leaves unfurl in the bottom of your mug; don't let this put you off. pearl tea'; pronounced [ʈʂú ʈʂʰǎ]) is a form of tea in which each leaf has been individually rolled into a small pellet. Content on this site is not intended to substitute for advice given by medical practitioner, pharmacist, or other licensed health-care professional. The typical gunpowder form is created by wetting the leaves a few times during the short roasting period, which slows down the drying process and results in a curling of the leaves.

Information and statements about products are not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition.The soothing earthy aroma and gentle feeling of the tea magic coursing through your veins early in the morning is something I couldn't really live without now. The name may also have arisen from the fact that the rolled pellet "explodes" into a long leaf upon being steeped in hot water.

If you are new to green teas, then Chun Mee, Gunpowder, or Sencha are the best places to start, but always remember to use water at 80C, boiling water kills the green tea flavour. We recommend that you do not rely solely on the information presented here and that you always read labels, warnings, and directions before using or consuming a product. A golden, green tea liquor is created as the pellet unfurls, infused with mint for a refreshing taste. No one is sure who created the original Earl Grey blend or indeed what it was like but we are confident that our use of the genuine, highest quality ingredients will make you feel that you have only really now discovered the real Earl Grey yourself.It is also believed to have many health benefits including lowering cholesterol, burning fat, detoxifying the body and improving the complexion. A recent study has established that when you put Gunpowder Green Tea vs Sencha, the former appears to have a higher antioxidant capacity. I first encountered this tea at a now sadly gone Chinese supermarket which wasn't far from the Broadmarsh Centre in Nottingham. The name 'gunpowder' was given to this tea because of its rolled leaves, which have the form of bullets.

So, for just-off the boil water, simply boil the kettle, let it sit for three to four minutes, then brew your tea, 2+ mins, no milk. This version, which is high in caffeine content can also be infused more than once which will reduce the slightly tangy character.In addition, it allows certain types of oolong teas to be aged for decades if they are cared for by being occasionally roasted. The tea - Kandy Broken Orange Pekoe - has a nice flavour but it's been smashed to little tiny pieces like you'd get in a tea bag rather the rough breaking of the leaves a BOP implies. Enjoyed for centuries since the Tang Dynasty, Gunpowder Green Tea is a prized traditional export of China. It’s not going to do all of the work for you, though, so be sure to keep up those morning jogs and evening salads. This exceptional large leafed green tea rolled up in the gunpowder form from Organic farms creates a refreshing bright pale yellow infusion with a light green tint.
