What is Ataya Tea?
Ataya tea is a popular Gunpowder tea that is made up of organic Gunpowder from China which has an herbal taste and character and looks like green tea leaves. In fact these are the Gunpowder green tea leaves that are rolled up in to mini pellets giving an appearance of gunpowder. Preparing this tea requires three steps each of which is minimum 20 minutes long. The tea leaves are often mixed with sugar, mint and water and are heated over a stove which has charcoal. The tea is extremely popular for its organic nature and astringent taste. The first glass is usually the strongest and tastes the bitterest. The second is comparatively less strong and dark in color but sweeter. However, the third is the sweetest and is the lightest in color and taste. Usually the tea is constantly poured back in the tea pot and then again to the glass to ensure all ingredients are mixed well and it gives a foamy appearance on the cup. According to the legend the first cup symbolizes the love of your mother, the second symbolizes the love of your friends and the third is actually the love of your love.
Usually the green tea provides 30 milligrams of caffeine in one cup and although Ataya tea is made up of gun powder green tea leaves it still provides more caffeine per cup. How much caffeine it provides per cup greatly varies depending on various factors such as how you prepare the tea and the quality of the green tea leaves you buy for preparing the tea. If for instance you purchase oolong tea leaves then per cup caffeine you would get would be around 40 milligrams or even more. If the gun powder comes from the black tea leaves then the caffeine content per cup would be higher up to 50 milligrams or more. However, the caffeine content that Ataya tea gives is still significantly lower than a cup of black coffee that gives around 100-150 milligrams of caffeine in a cup.
