Gunpowder Green Tea (Zhu Cha, 珠茶) has been made in China for well over a thousand years and exported for almost that long. Traditionally the tea leaves were rolled into small balls or pellets which helps the unfermented tea leaves withstand storage and transportation without undue breakage which could lead to unwanted oxidation or flavor loss. Our Organic Gunpowder Green Tea is not, in fact, rolled into pellets, but the traditional green gunpowder flavor is retained.

Our Organic Gunpowder Green Tea has a robust, slightly smoky flavor, and when steeped produces a lovely yellow colored brew.

Gunpowder Green Tea is a great get-up-and-go tea, marvelous first thing in the morning as well as into the heart of the day.

Tea Time

I sampled this tea at a country fair in Maine. I have taken tea classes and studied tea. I am EXTREMELY picky and judgmental when it comes to tea. Red Cup is my absolute favorite!! Highest quality and I love the name and the tins!
Da Hong Pa is the most delicious tea on the planet. It tastes like pecans, walnuts and cashews all together, so good!!

Great wake up tea in the morning! Wonderful flavor!

Excellent company!

I received my 2nd shipment recently and am very happy with Little Red Cup! The tea is excellent and the service is fast, friendly and communicative
I had a terrible experience with another tea company so it’s nice to be able to count on Little Red Cup. I love the personal notes and happy faces that come with orders too! If you sent me a Little Red Cup t-shirt in XL I would proudly advertise for you!😄

Fresh, full flavor

I like my tea strong, and little red cup is very satisfying!

Best Gunpowder Green Tea Ever

Little Red Tea Cup Organic Gunpowder Green Tea is just luscious, smooth, never bitter (unless I mess up) excellent consistent flavor.

Rich but fresh, silky and slightly sweet

This green tea is delicious and surprising. My husband and I both enjoy gunpowder green tea, and we agree this is the best we have tasted. It brews a satisfying and rich cup of golden tea, but its fresh taste is what makes the difference. It tastes lightly sweet and leaves a silky feel on the aftertaste.

Perfect Tea

I found the perfect green tea. Gunpowder green. So lucky to have Little RedCup Teas so I can sit back and enjoy all my favorite teas

Gunpowder Green

Great GOOD MORNING! tea. Not an alarm clock. But like a persistent whisper in your ear. Because like all Little Red Cup teas, it's full of flavor but leaves out the bite found in stale, guess what grocery store tea bags. Two joys of my old age: discovering Mozart's "piano" concertos (over and over again) and becoming a tea lover after discovering Little Red Cup. Fresh, no bitterness, and oh the flavor--even in much milder varieties.
