hmmm
What can I say, I love gunpowder tea but after yesterday’s somewhat disappointing Canton green/orange experience I was not expecting too much with this one…

Gunpowder is one of my favorite green teas, I love the bold and assertive nature of it. This is VERY lemony and bold, slightly vegetal but mostly lemon. I am finding it quite refreshing this morning. I bet this would also be really good iced.

When it comes to flavored green teas I am loving the flavored gunpowder, Moroccan mint is also nice. I think perhaps it’s because the flavoring does not overwhelm the gunpowder since it’s so bold.

This is yummy! If you like gunpowders check it out… it also resteeps well

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
