As a doctor, my patients often ask me if they can have a more natural way of healing. And I always ask them to try herbal teas. One of the best brands that I recommend is Ono Teas, as they make handcrafted loose-leaf teas that are processed in small quantities to ensure the retention of nutrients. Their exotic collection of teas and tisanes has helped my patients manage their weight and maintain healthy blood pressure levels and blood sugar.

HISTORY & ORIGINS

Gunpowder Tea
First of all, don’t worry. Gunpowder tea isn’t made from actual gunpowder. It is made by rolling the dried tea leaves in the form of pearls which resembles gunpowder and its immediate nature of expanding itself when dropped in hot water. The name Gunpowder comes from the Chinese phrase “gang pao de”, meaning freshly brewed. Gunpowder tea was first created in Pingshui, Zhejiang Province, China during the Tang Dynasty’s rule, more than 1000 years ago. This tea is one of the oldest teas in the world. We at Ono Teas have our Gunpowder tea hand-rolled and rolled into tiny pearls to allow you to feel the intricate dispense of flavours. Carefully selected, the gunpowder tea leaves are a must-have to compliment your invincible nature. If you are a tea enthusiast or a tea connoisseur or someone who is stepping into the world of teas to make healthier choices, Ono Teas have got you. With the peppery notes, copper aftertaste, grassy overtones, bitterish nutty, or even bread-like notes, the flavour of the Gunpowder tea is unforgettable.
