Black gunpowder?

by Inaya » May 17th, '12, 14:50

Hey all,

A local teahouse at my old home sold a fantastic black gunpowder called Winchester. It's black leaves rolled just like the green version and makes a very strong cup.

Unfortunately, I have moved since, so I can no longer buy this tea. I have looked online without any luck, so I was wondering if anyone here was familiar with this tea and knew where to get it.

Upton Tea Imports (a company which I like very much) used to sell a black gunpowder, but they discontinued it.

The only two companies I know of selling it, TeaVitality, and Plymouth Tea Company, are ones I have never had any experience with.
