*Organic China Gunpowder Grade 1 Tea Leaves. *Certified Organic.


Chinese Gunpowder tea, also known as "Gunpowder," or "Gunpowder green tea" is a type of green leaf tea that originates from China. The tea leaves tightly roll into small balls. We make our Gunpowder tea with fresh, high-quality leaves to create a refreshing taste and a hint of bitterness.

Gunpowder loose leaf tea is especially recommended for enthusiasts of green tea. Tea lovers commonly use it in the preparation of mint tea. Like all green teas, natural Gunpowder is abundant in polyphenols. This property makes it an exceptional health partner with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-ageing characteristics.

It may help to support the avoidance of heart disease through its impact on specific liver problems and harmful cholesterol. It has a positive effect on renal circulation and aids in removing toxins. Caffeine, found in natural Gunpowder, is sought for its beneficial effects on the nervous systems and brain.

Here are some key benefits of Organic China Gunpowder Tea - Grade 1:

  • Gunpowder tea is rich in polyphenols.
  • It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties.
  • You can enjoy this Gunpowder plain or with fresh mint leaves.

Best Green Tea I’ve Ever Tasted

I’ve been drinking green tea for over 20 years and this Organic Gunpowder tea is the best I’ve ever tasted. I only need to use about 4 pieces as when in the boiling water the full leaf unfolds and makes a rich satisfying drink, afterwards I add more boiling water and it makes another cup. I highly recommend The Finest Organic Tea Company.

Wow, Susan, you have made our day. Bless you. For a customer who has drunk gunpowder tea for so long, this is a great accolade for us as a company!

We are so happy that you have enjoyed your Organic tea from us. We have strived for so long to stock the quality teas we have on our website and hearing great feedback makes it all so worthwhile.

Kindest Regards The Finest Organic Tea Company

Great Gunpowder

Gunpowder tea is one of my favourites and this organic one did not disappoint. It was smoothly strong without being overly bitter yet fresh. I tend to brew my tea for longer than the recommended time which is a touch risky, however, this one held its own and tasted delicious!

Hey there Salli,

Thank you ever so much for taking the time to review your Organic Tea, as you say steeping duration is very much a personal preference. I’m very like you and enjoy a nice strong tea. May I take this opportunity to thank you again for your order and may I wish you and your family well for the years ahead

kindest regards
The Finest Organic Tea Company
