......Waiter didn’t understand English at all, but he knew the gentleman was talking about the tea he served, so he said: “the tea is just been made”( in China, serving a cold tea is as rude as serving a warm beer in Europe) in Chinese. “just” is sounds “gang” in Chinese, and “been made” is sounds “pao de”.
“Gang Pao De??” So the gentleman remember the very special green tea name as “gunpowder”.

MY Teahouse suggest using 85 degree ºC on top of the tea leaves, brewing for about 45sec-1minute for the 1st infusion, 30-45sec for the 2nd and 3rd infusions and 1.5minutes for the 4th and 5th infusions.
