It offers a nutty aroma with a soft honey taste followed by a smoky hint.

Health Benefits* of Gunpowder Green Tea
Like all green teas, it is extremely rich in antioxidants, especially catechins- the most abundant being EGCG (epigallocatechin) which is known for inhibiting influenza symptoms and may reduce the duration.
It combines three major allies that may burn fat and build muscle; catechins, caffeine and theanine. Together they may boost metabolism and digestion, which may allow your body to burn fat more quickly.
It contains more caffeine than other green teas (35-40 mg per serving).
