With the name of gunpowder is known to this variety of green tea grown in the Chinese province of Zhejiang and named for its visual resemblance to gunpowder (in English gunpowder) since when collected the leaves are rolled in the form of balls to better maintain their properties.
Formerly this process of molding tea leaves was done by hand and is currently carried out by specialized machinery, although there are some types of gunpowder that are still wrapped by hand so they are more appreciated.
In China it is also known as "pearl tea" due to its visual appearance.
