Gunpowder Tea – A dynamic tea experience

What is Gunpowder Tea?

Gunpowder tea, also known as "zucha" or "pearl tea," gets its name from the shape of its leaves, which resemble gunpowder. The leaves are rolled into small, firm balls that expand when brewed, releasing a powerful aroma.

Taste and aroma

Gunpowder tea is known for its strong, slightly smoky flavor. It is more intense and bitter than many other green teas, making it an excellent choice for tea lovers who prefer a tea with a strong presence.

Preparation and enjoyment

To prepare Gunpowder tea, it is recommended to use the water just before boiling so as not to over-boil the fine leaves. The tea can be left to brew for a few minutes, depending on your taste. Due to its strong nature, Gunpowder tea is also ideal for making traditional Moroccan mint tea.

Health benefits

In addition to its unique taste, gunpowder tea also offers health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants and can help support a healthy immune system. It is also said to have a stimulating effect, making it an ideal drink to start the day.
