Gunpowder tea is a form of tea in which each leaf has been rolled into a small round pellet.
9575 gunpowder pellets are quite bigger than normal since bigger leaves are used to produce this fine green tea.
Tea leaves are withered, steamed, rolled, and then dried. Although the individual leaves were formerly rolled by hand, today all but the highest grade gunpowder teas are rolled by machines.
Rolling renders the leaves less susceptible to physical damage and breakage and allows them to retain more of their flavor and aroma. In addition, it allows certain types of oolong teas to be aged for decades if they are cared for by being occasionally roasted.
