This is a tea shaped to look like small pellets that resemble the gunpowder pellets used for ammunition during the seventeenth century and is one of the first teas ever to be exported from China to Europe. Gunpowder was originally hand rolled but today is more likely to be machine rolled. Our particular Gunpowder is also known as Imperial Gunpowder "Temple of Heaven", especially tannic for a green.
