The “Gunpowder” name is due to the resemblance of its small leaves, rolled up like bullets.
Once collected, the leaves are dried in the sun or in particular rooms, in order to stop the oxidation.
It is probably the most drunk tea in the world, having a fresh and pungent taste, with smoky notes and is excellent for iced tea.
Like all green teas, Gunpowder is widely used in diets.
