The leaves of this green tea are rolled into the shape of little pellets resembling gunpowder, hence its name. Gunpowder green tea tastes bold and lightly smoky, also lending to it's name. Gunpowder tea leaves stay fresh longer than any other green tea leaves due to its compressed form. Gunpowder green is higher in caffeine than most other green teas (35-40 mg/8 oz serving) and is commonly used by athletes to improve endurance over periods of 3-6 hours.



The name of this tea is said to derive from its visual similarity to military gunpowder, infusing the colonial phrase of "gunpowder diplomacy" with much irony. Gunpowder is the favorite green tea of Morocco and the Middle East, where it is commonly prepared with mint and plenty of sugar. The local custom dictates that it be served by men, and be poured in such a way as to create a sizeable foam atop one's glass. Gunpowder tea is often mixed with peppermint leaves to create a unique blend called Moroccan Mint.
