Gunpowder tea originated in the Zhejiang province of China and its production dates back to the Tang dynasty. It gets its name from its leaves which are rolled into tiny round balls resembling gunpowder. Its leaves are withered, steamed, rolled and then dried. The rolling protects the leaves from physical damage and retains its natural flavor and aroma for long period of time. The leaves are then selected for their quality, size and style; small, tightly rolled leaf pellets, about the size of a pinhead, mark high quality.
The Moringa tree (Latin: Morinaga oleifera), native to Northern India, has been revered by traditional health practitioners for millennia – in particular as a source of brain-enriching nutrients. In fact, in developing countries where food sources may be scarce, Moringa supplements play a role as an important source of essential proteins, iron, riboflavin and more.
