Gunpowder tea comes from the first harvest of the year. It’s steamed and then rolled into small dark green balls. These beads or pellets resemble canon gunpowder, hence its name Gunpowder. It´s rich in magnesium and fluoride, with a pleasant taste and a greenish gold color in the cup. Scientific studies have shown that the regular consumption is associated with a lower incidence of dental cavities.
