I bought a sample of this expecting “a superior gunpowder experience” but got a superior vegetable broth instead. There is no familiar gunpowder smokiness in this tea, at all. All you get is an ultimate vegetable flavor like broccoli and asparagus soup with a little bit of sweetness. The leaf is high quality, the brew is fragrant but the taste is just not working for me.

I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea all my life. I always take tea plain without adding any sweetener or milk to it. Would love to swap for tea, feel free to contact me about it.
