This is my first experience with gunpowder. It’s such small little pellets of tea. It has a smokiness I’m not much a fan of. I brewed it for an iced tea. It was too smoky for me, even though it’s very little. This would probably more for hot tea, not so good iced. I don’t like smoky teas to drink iced. It isn’t refreshing to me. I don’t think I would like this warm either.
