The green tea Gunpowder Temple of Heaven is also called "Zucha" or "pearl tea". The tea leaves are formed into shiny balls by hand and rolled. The tea has a greenish colour and tastes fresh and slightly tart. The water for the infusion should have a maximum water temperature of about 80°C. The name of the green tea translates as "jade snail of spring", as the rolled leaves are reminiscent of small curled spirals. Already in the Ming Dynasty, this tea was considered one of the "ten great teas" in China. In spring and autumn, the 3-5 youngest shoots are picked. Rolling protects the leaves from damage and is more likely to preserve flavour and aroma.
