Not one of the better gunpowder teas. Not so sure what justifies the much higher price. Details here: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/05/review-kusmi-teas-gunpowder-tea.html

Not bad whether you like milk in your breakfast tea or not. Just not special, either. My humans go into more detail here: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-kusmi-teas-russian-morning-no-24.html

“This one is a bit of a puzzle. The first infusion did not have the taste qualities we had come to expect in a Darjeeling. That Muscatel fruitiness was not present but the flavor was instead mild and a sort of roasty planty quality. It wasn’t bad, just different.” Read the rest of what my humans thought of this tea: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/04/review-thunderbolt-teas-2010-sample-10.html

The great taste keeps coming with another Darjeeling from Thunderbolt Tea. My humans are smiling and I am tooting with sheer delight: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-thunderbolt-teas-2010-sample-9.html

So grateful for being able to try these teas from Thunderbolt Tea. Am feeling like a lucky little teapot. My humans are happy about them, too. Another tasty one: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-thunderbolt-teas-2010-sample-8.html

Very nice flavored tea. Groovy package look. Suits this little teapot well. My humans liked it, too. http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-indie-teas-road-to-hana-tea.html

Every sample from this company has exceeded expectations. This is no exception. If this little teapot could steep only one tea per day, this would be it. No joking here. http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-thepuriteacoms-roasted-dong-ding.html

Gunpowder is the green tea my humans drink most, so they should have tasted ’em all, right? Wrong! This version lifts gunpowder from the mundane. Even this humble little teapot thinks so. http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-persimmon-tree-teas-gunpowder.html

The people behind this online tea shop are such lovely humans that this little teapot is very happy when I can say (with total honesty) how yummy the tea is, too! This is a yummy tea, and my humans were on cloud 9 afterwards. Some great photos here (especially of me): http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-element-teas-nepal-sftgfop1-tea.html
