Green tea - Gunpowder from Zhejiang: intensity for your vitality

Gunpowder green tea is a tea that mint tea lovers know perfectly well, it is the one we prefer for Moroccan teas. Here, I present it to you in its most natural form.

This Gunpowder tea is grown in China, in the province of Zhiejang which is located in the east of the country, south of Shanghai, on the shores of the East China Sea. Here, it finds extremely favourable conditions to blossom and offer us beautiful tea leaves with a bewitching fragrance and a taste that leaves no one indifferent.

Gunpowder means "gunpowder" . It is its shape due to a withering into small balls that gives it its name. It has been cultivated for nearly 1,500 years in China and has become one of the most popular drinks in Asia, but also and especially in North Africa. It is in this region of the world that mint tea is more than a habit, it is a real tradition.

This green tea is particularly invigorating. Also, if you wish to replace coffee and benefit from all the virtues of tea, I recommend you to consume Gunpowder green tea from Zhejiang.

What are the flavours of Zhejiang Gunpowder Green Tea?

You will love this Zhejiang Gunpowder tea for its full-bodied and tangy notes. Not everyone will like its intensity. Don't stay on a bad impression and taste a second infusion that will reveal all the richness of this green tea.

Green tea - Zhejiang Gunpowder: from the plantation to the cup

The Zhejiang Gunpowder is a tea that is, by definition, not oxidized. It is therefore necessary to stop the oxidation quickly, otherwise the tea will be black.

First, the first and second leaves are plucked, which contain the most active principles to combine taste and virtues. The tea leaves are then roasted to remove the enzymes responsible for oxidation. They are heated to 100° in a metal basin for 30 seconds. Still soft, the leaves are then rolled. With the Zhejiang Gunpowder tea, we opt for a rolling in the shape of balls which bring all its specificity to this green tea. Finally, the leaves are dried, the aim of this stage being to bring the moisture content of the tea leaves down to 5 to 6%.

Food and tea: David Vanille's pairings

This full-bodied tea can be balanced with a sweet dessert like an oriental pastry. After all, it is the base of the famous Moroccan mint tea. In fact, you can recall the taste of this product by combining a Zhejiang Gunpowder tea with a minty dessert. Of course, you can add fresh mint leaves to your brew and create your own Moroccan mint tea. By ordering my Zhejiang Gunpowder tea, you can vary the pleasures.

The virtues of green tea - Zhejiang Gunpowder

The Zhejiang Gunpowder is a green tea that has many benefits that will convince you to drink it more often.

First of all, green tea is good for your figure, why deprive yourself? It encourages you to drink water, which is a real plus when you want to maintain your weight or even lose weight. But it is also a drink that contains caffeine and epigallocatechin gallate (ECG). This stimulates the metabolism and makes it easier to burn fat. Five cups of Zhejiang Gunpowder green tea can burn 50 to 100 calories simply by enjoying a good tea.

Zhejiang Gunpowder Green Tea fights against cardiovascular disease and stroke. Why is that? Simply because the tea contains very active polyphenols. At the same time, the catechins in green tea help to fight against bad cholesterol.

The ECG also helps to stimulate memory and prevent neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Finally, ECG belongs to the flavonoid family. As such, this antioxidant helps to prevent cancer by fighting against the formation of malignant cells.
