Cold steeped is where this tea is at. It’s extra fruity and the spices add some definite interest.
It’s unfortunately also where the rooibos flavor is at.
Bonus pic: A teacow charm I just made! (being in Wisconsin and all). He’s so fresh I haven’t even baked him yet!
So Cameron’s is a company founded in Shakopee, MN that just happens to have looseleaf tea in my grocery store of choice. Which is awesome really as I live in a place known for beer and cheese, so teahouses are far and few between.
That being said, this blend is really meh to me. I definitely taste plum. But the only other thing I taste is hibiscus. And no amount of sugar is getting that to get to a level that I really enjoy. It makes an okay before bed cup when I really don’t care all that much though. I likely won’t be getting any more.
This is my first gunpowder and I really like it! The smokiness really stands out in both aroma and flavor. Since this is my first one I’m not sure about the quality; the leaves after steeping look small and broken but not really bad. I bought this in bulk at a local grocery store and I am under the impression it wasn’t very fresh; I am a little ashamed to say I still like it! =) Now I’m really looking forward to trying more gunpowders!
This isn’t bad at all. I took the first couple of sips while it was still hot, enjoyed that the focus was on the green tea and not so much on the tropical fruit… and then set it aside to let it cool so that I could enjoy it iced. It is FAR better iced than it was hot … and I quite liked it hot. But this blend is one of those that just is made for iced tea.
The tropical fruit notes seem to pop out a bit more as it cools, but the green tea remains the strongest note. Very pleasant tea.
I love this tea. I love this tea, I love this tea, I love this tea. Every time I have a cup, I fall in love all over again. This is one of my favorite cups of tea, it’s so very juicy and fruity…I didn’t even know what black currant tasted like before this!
I have to ask my steepster family: I can only find this online in 2 lb bags…is there anywhere I can buy this in smaller quantities? I don’t even want to run out!
Everything about this is very gentle. I like that as sometimes I am just looking for a gentle green or a gentle flavored green…this will fit the bill for those moments.
The green tea is a bit flatter than most which contributes to the overall gentle-factor. As is both the Pineapple and Papaya flavors. I can taste a combo of those two flavors paired with the green tea but it’s hard to distinguish which tropical fruits are in the flavor combo. BUT…the taste is juicy yet gentle and overall quite satisfying…
Lots of tart passion fruit flavor. The aftertaste is more berry with a touch of something herbal. Tastes a lot like a less intense version of Tazo’s Passion tea. This tea blend looks great, with huge chunks of fruit and leaves. It is a little weak – I used three heaping teaspoons to about 14 ounces of water. Prepared with stevia.
I fell in love with black currant tea from a deli chain called Jason’s Deli. They offered an amazing iced black currant tea, real full on the mouth. Thankfully, I found a replacement! The tea is lush in black currant flavor. It tastes real, not artificial. I have only had it iced. It’s truly an uplifting tea, made with assam. I am a fan, and I will be buying this tea up!
I was so thrilled to find this at my grocery store – loose, for 99 cents/oz. I really like rooibos, and I wanted to get plain old rooibos for blending with other teas/herbs/flavorings. This is great on its own, or with a splash of soymilk. Nice earthy flavor and a subtle sweetness, like I would expect from a rooibos.
