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.

Gunpowder Green is available by 4.5 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.

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!!

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.

High Quality, Responsible Tea

I love high quality tea, I love shopping local, and I love knowing the tea growers are getting a fair deal. This tea checks all those boxes, plus it's reasonably priced! I'm a long time green tea drinker and this tea is everything...smooth, earthy, and strong. I'm a huge fan!

Excellent Company!

I ordered 3 kinds of Green Tea, The Eyebrow, Gunpowder and Jasmine. They are all delicious! The packaging and service is wonderful as well. When these run out I will definitely be ordering more.

very pleased

This is a pleasant tea, and it is good for several pourings.
For the last pour I leave it out in the sun in a glass teapot and enjoy it late in the day.

A good basic tea

Little Red Cup delivers yet another high-quality, whole-leaf tea. I'm giving this tea 4 stars because even though it is very good quality, it's not my favorite among all the teas LRC has to offer. I like Yulu Green and Jasmine Green a little better, flavor- and aroma-wise. If you're a lover of Gunpowder Green in general, however, you'll probably really enjoy this because as I mentioned, it's very high quality.
