Organic Gunpowder Green Tea ⁠–⁠ fresh slightly bitter taste, from young tea leaves, improves attention and mood

Vilgain Organic Gunpowder Green Tea - natural stimulant with bitter taste packed with antioxidants

Gunpowder green tea is known for its bracingly bitter and slightly bitter taste. Compared to other varieties, it has a medium to strong aroma with a hint of freshly cut grass.

Traditional processing for the perfect flavour

The tea leaves are hand‑harvested and further processed in China, where the tea leaves. Our Gunpowder requires young, high‑quality leaves that do not go through the oxidation process. As a result, they remain distinctively green and, compared to black teas, retain a higher ratio of essential oils contributing to the characteristic bitter‑bitter taste. After drying, the tea leaves are steamed for better handling and packed into balls visually resembling gunpowder, hence the name of the tea.

Less worry and more attention

Green teas are among a handful of beverages truly packed with a wide range of active ingredients.

The most interesting for you will probably be caffeine, which, although it contains slightly less than black tea or coffee, still has more than enough of this stimulant to recharge your batteries in the morning and after lunch [1].

In the body, polyphenols and vitamin C play the role of powerful anti‑oxidants whose job is to protect all cells from free radicals and break down oxidative stress that can lead to cardiovascular problems, cancer, ageing and other health complications [2].

Last, but certainly not least, is L‑theanine, whose effects are associated with reducing stress reactions and anxiety [3]. In other words, by drinking green tea you can fundamentally improve not only your mood but also the mood of everyone around you.

If you're not a fan of steaming mugs, enjoy green tea as an iced drink on steamy summer afternoons. Just brew the tea, let it steep, add some ice and dilute with cold water or fruit juice to taste. For an extra refreshing variation, add a slice of lemon, lime or a few mint leaves and voila, a refreshing drink that will give you a kick.

100% organic packaging

We pack our teas in a bag made of hard paper and PLA, which is a plant‑based layer of material (90% of which is stems, leaves, etc.). The packaging is thus environmentally friendly and fully compostable. By having different properties to conventional plastic bags, the zip closure may occasionally tear away from the bag.
