About Black Gunpowder

Tightly Rolled Black Tea Leaves
Black Gunpowder
from Upton Tea
Black gunpowder is a style of black tea that has been tightly rolled into round pellets and has a grayish color. Normally, "gunpowder tea" refers to gunpowder green tea. The black style of tea is less common. Unlike its green cousin, it does not have a smoky aroma.

The only thing that the two teas have in common is that they tend to be produced in China and that they are rolled into a similar shape. Many oolongs are also rolled into a similar shape, but these teas are usually not referred to as "gunpowder", in part because their colors tend to range through greens and deep browns.
