About Gunpowder Green Tea

Tightly Rolled Olive-gray Colored Tea Leaves
Gunpowder Green Tea
from The Tea Set
Gunpowder tea, Chinese zhu cha(珠茶) usually refers to a style of green tea rolled into small round pellets; the name references the fact that the pellets resemble gunpowder pellets. Gunpowder tea often has a strongly smoky aroma, although some varieties of this tea have little or no smokiness in the aroma.

Gunpowder tea is also produced in Taiwan, where it is sometimes called Formosa gunpowder, and in Sri Lanka, where it can be called Ceylon gunpowder.

Occasionally, other teas are rolled into pellets in a similar way. Black gunpowder is one such style of tea, although it is much less common. Generally "gunpowder tea" refers to the smokey green tea. Many oolong teas are also rolled into pellets similarly, although they rarely bear the name "gunpowder".

Gunpowder tea originated in Zhejiang province in China, but it is now produced elsewhere as well. Gunpowder tea is generally inexpensive, and even many of the high-quality gunpowder teas tend to be very reasonably priced.
