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.

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.
