Gunpowder (80g)

GUN-2008

New

Years ago, a western gentleman was visiting Shanghai.After eating his lunch, he was given some green tea to drink.

"Such good tea! What's the name of it?" he asked.

The waiter, not knowing English, thought he was asking if the tea was fresh.

"The tea has just been made."

In Chinese, "just" is said as "gang" and "been made" is said as "pao de".

"Gang Pao De?" Thus, the tea was named Gunpowder.
