Our USDA Certified Organic Gunpowder Imperial is the highest grade available and comes from the renowned "green tea triangle" in Anhui Province, China.

Called "Gunpowder" because of the pellet like appearance, not all gunpowder green tea is the same. For the finest quality look for a consistent size and shape in the roll, a dark almost shiny finish to the leaf and a smoother, not as smoky a finish as some of the lower grade teas.

gun powder green tea (Thursday, December 04, 2014)
Reviewer: stephanie

This gun powder green tea is the absolute best. This tea doesnít leave floaters in your cup*. I have tried a green tea from a local place where I live thinking that this green tea will be pretty good, but it was not. I am a green tea connoisseur, and I have been drinking it for several years now. I had completely run out of my gun powder and used my local tea, and I was frantic trying to get my tea etc. ordered and delivered asap, this tea is the reason I am ready to get up every morning with a smile on my face. (itís that good)

A top green tea (Wednesday, December 03, 2014)
Reviewer: Charles

These rolled tea leaves really open up when steeped, and provide a nice, somewhat earthy note. Love to add some to the Moroccan Mint to add a bit more balance to my cup.

My favorite gunpowder (Saturday, October 25, 2014)
Reviewer: Candice

I've tried numerous gunpowder's and this is by far my favorite. It has the perfect balance of a light smoky finish, green tea flavor, and the astringency is not overwhelming which I have often found with gunpowders. I drink it in the morning as my wake up drink. I do find that this tea-not just this specific gunpowder, but gunpowders in general-are finicky and over steeping by even 10 seconds or having the water a touch too hot can make the difference between an outstanding cup and a cup that is too sharp, so this is the tea you need to be mindful about when brewing.

High quality green tea without breaking the bank (Saturday, June 21, 2014)
Reviewer: Adrian

This tea has a much stronger flavor, think bitter but not overpowering, than that of Dragon Well Pre Qing Ming. However, this tea still stands above other gunpowder green teas in its class. Not to mention an organic tea that is relatively low cost. This tea can be infused more than once, with the 2nd infusion taming some of the strength that is in the 1st infusion.

my favorite budget tea (Wednesday, January 22, 2014)
Reviewer: Christopher

When I'm poor... this is the tea I live off of.

Best gunpowder Ive ever had!

Gunpowder Organic (Sunday, November 03, 2013)
Reviewer: Marilyn Tipton

When I drink green tea, I really like gunpowder. Nothing fancy about it, just good green tea at a good price. This one is the best I have had. More mellow and a tad less smoky than other gunpowder teas I have had. Will definitely re-order this one.

Excellent quality (Wednesday, August 14, 2013)
Reviewer: Cassidy

I enjoyed this gunpowder especially since it is not as smokey as others. Plus mixed with some mint you cant go wrong! Yummy!!

My two sons LOVE green tea! (Sunday, May 12, 2013)
Reviewer: Mary-Ellen Russo-Jasinski

I bought organic gunpowder green tea and now my boys drink it regularly. They love it. Great to drink when you start feeling sluggish. A great pick me up! And it comes packaged extremely well. Great customer service, too!

Organic Gunpowder Green Tea (Thursday, February 14, 2013)
Reviewer: Doug Powell

- Fairly strong and tart but quite a smooth and good,clear, taste. This is the way I like tea, so, I tend to brew it to get this strong, tart, taste. In spite of the latter, I have found no significant,lingering,aftertaste. - Virtually nil stems or other such things among the leaves.

Great staple (Thursday, January 24, 2013)
Reviewer: Aleksandra

This is my green tea staple. I love green tea, drink lots of it and the gunpowder has always been my first choice. For the organic tea, it is also a very good price (I buy the largest amount, 16oz, because I know I'll use it)

Bold Blend (Monday, January 21, 2013)
Reviewer: Lorie

A little strong for me but guys seem to prefer it.

Great for a non-green tea drinker (Wednesday, November 28, 2012)
Reviewer: Jen

I always feel like I should be drinking green tea even though I've never cared for it. I read the reviews and tried the Gunpowder Organic and really enjoy it. I've recommended it to several friends, all of whom have also liked this tea. It is indeed smoother than many green teas and an easy tea to drink. I enjoy a cup in the evenings after dinner. Perfect.
