China Gunpowder Green Tea
Gunpowder tea is a form of Chinese green tea, in which each leaf has been rolled into a small round pellet, resembling grains of gunpowder. It is also known as "pearl tea" in Chinese. The tea leaves are tightly rolled into small pellets to preserve freshness and flavor. The name "gunpowder" comes from its appearance, not its taste. The tea liquor is deep yellowish in color and has a stronger flavor compared to other green teas, with a smoky note. The famous Moroccan mint tea is made from Gunpowder tea combined with spearmint leaves and sweetened with honey. Gunpowder tea contains three major allies that burn fat and build muscle: catechins, caffeine and theanine. Together, they boost metabolism, allowing one to burn fat much faster. It also has more caffeine than other green teas, with 35-40mg per serving.
Drinking green tea has numerous health benefits. It boosts metabolism, improves heart health, aids in digestion, enhances cognitive function, boosts immunity, improves skin health, strengthens bones, enhances oral health, aids in weight loss, and reduces stress. Its rich antioxidant content makes it a great addition to any healthy lifestyle.
