My morning tea today…just because…
to leave a comment.
Smells great and true.Nice color for a green. I really like the way this one tastes! The Apricot highlights are PERFECT for this tea!
Great to sip and relax and think about life. Smells nice, too!
It was all about the Almond Scent today…nice
Tastes a little like a delicate dessert of sorts…today…very nice
Delightful! I’m having this with lunch which happens to be Dr. McDougall’s Vegan White Bean & Pasta Soup – Light Sodium…another good pair
I’m still somewhat shocked that I like this one like I do…but I do…it’s good to pair with nearly anything, too!
As you open the tin before steeping it smells like Almond Essential Oil or something. As it’s steeping it’s all about the earthy scent. Afterwards it’s earthy meets Almond. It’s a good Oolong with a little Almond taste. Which is ok with me.
I think I finally nailed the amount and length on this. I was VERY happy with this attempt. So-much-so that I am raising my rating for it a tad.
So what is your prefered amount and time? Give us your tea secrets!:)
Yay for the Gunpowder love! <3 I did mine at 180 for 3 minutes and it came out pretty nice. :)
I agree with the 3 mins – I have found it fairly funky after 3 mins. The amount I used was a half of a tablespoon
I have been oversteeping this lately so this time I was REAL careful. The cup was PERFECT!
2.25g per 6oz for 3 min
Warm up on Cup 2 and 3…NICE
Since this expands so much while steeping I sometimes add too much of it – as I did this time – plus I over steeped – ek! It was grainy/gloomy and super dark! But it’s still good! Thank Goodness!!!
I’m on cup #2 so far…I intend more steeps too! :)
This Gunpowder really has a BANG of flavor! Always nice to have on hand if you are into Green Teas, that is
Typical color and scent for Gunpowder.Nice full. bold taste…then again I think I may have steeped more than I was supposed to
Double cup, 1 Truvia
Single cup, 1 Truvia
3rd steep – still nice but not as dark. Still good flavor tho!
Excellent on the resteep!
I am just finishing up my tin and oversteeped and used a larger amount. I am going to put it to the Resteep test but for the time being enjoying the cup…dark and bold, very nice!
Getting low on my black teas…ek…this is a nice cup when you are looking for a Black Tea – not a lot of fuss or extras…tastee!
Another cup. This re-steeps VERY well! :)
On My 3rd Cup today…looking for a simple but good black tea. This is IT!
Num,Num,Num. Nice Afternoon Pick-Me-Up!
