Our USDA Certified Organic Gunpowder Imperial is the highest grade available and comes from the renowned "green tea triangle" in Anhui Province, China. Called "Gunpowder" because of the pellet like appearance. It's important to note that not all gunpowder green tea is the same. For the finest quality look for a consistent size and shape in the roll, a dark almost shiny finish to the leaf and a smoother, not as smoky a finish as some of the lower grade teas.
