Organic Gunpowder

This grade of Gunpowder tea is produced from fine China green tea that is painstakingly processed into loosely rolled "pearls." The finished product is a tea with rich flavor, balanced pungency, and the smoky tones one would expect from a quality Gunpowder.

Not as good as previous years of ZG26
Bill – CA – July 16, 2018

I have been a huge fan and have been buying ZG26- Upton's organic gunpowder for many years. This new version has a much looser pellet and is missing the complexity that I came to love, especially the nuances of smoke. It's not a bad cup of tea mind you, it's just not an amazing cup anymore. Either a bad vintage, or coming from a different source.

Good, but not great

I liked this tea, but I have also had Numi's gunpowder green tea and found that better. That being said, I know many other tea brands add "natural flavoring" and are not organic like this one. I'm not sure if Numi is one of them.

One of my favorites

This is a very high quality gunpowder tea, absolutely a big difference (and step up) from cheaper versions. There’s a nice oily coating of natural oils and esscences covering the tea, and it all just rolls into the hot water and creates a beautiful aroma and you can taste that quality from the first sip. If you’ve only had cheap gunpower, try this.
