Recent Tasting Notes
This time I followed the water temperature recommendations for Gunpowder tea and the result was gratifying. The flavour was refreshing. Although not all the leaves unrolled, the tea had a good body and taste. However, I can’t avoid the feeling that something was missing in my cup to make it perfect.
Flavors: Earth, Smoke
This is the very first cup of lose leaf tea I’m having. As the name says it, it is magical. It is a good way to start. It is sweet and at the same time keeps the flavour of green and white tea, whereas the touch of lemon grass makes it feel fresh.
I love this tea. Citrus fruits and sencha go together perfectly, but this tea is something special. It’s the biscuity flavour that does it: it adds a lovely warmth to the smell and the taste of the tea. The inclusion of peppercorns and cardamom pods (real favourites of mine in flavoured teas) helps a lot in this regard, and means the subtle spicy tone hangs on through multiple infusions – I usually get three or four out of this tea.
