Gunpowder tea is a speciality chinese green tea. It gets its name from the resemblance to gunpowder that these tightly rolled leaves give to the finished tea, or perhaps it's is from the way the rolled leaves explode into life when you add hot water.
First recorded in the Tang dynasty over 1000 years ago, Ahmad Tea master blenders respect this tradition by selecting only the very best teas available for use in our Green Gunpowder.
Gunpowder tea has the lowest caffeine content of any of our teas, and this amber coloured, refreshing brew is therefore suitable for drinking at any time of the day.

Each and every morning, my favourite cup of tea would be English Breakfast. It’s strong, it’s coloury, it’s got a wonderful nutty flavour that I really do enjoy, and it takes the milk well.William Manning, Senior Tea Taster
In the UK Head Office we taste over 500 cups of tea every day, to search for the best quality teas available from around the world.Dominic Marriot, Tea Taster
Later on in the afternoon I might try something like a Darjeeling that has the muscatel flavour, or maybe even a high-grown Ceylon, but definitely my favourite brew, and the one that I drink the most of, is English Breakfast.William Manning , Senior Tea Taster
