I found a 3.5 oz tin of this at TJ Maxx for $2.99. $2.99. SCORE!
Note to self: gunpowder tea is SOOPER caffeinated. I’m jittery and my heart is racing after two cups. And the second cup was resteeped.
That said, this tea is also incredibly tasty. I don’t normally like green teas but this tea is bold, dark, slightly smoky, slightly dry, and 100% delicious. I love this so much.
I have gotten two steeps from the leaves, and it is still going strong. I can probably get at least another 2-3 steeps in but I think I should stop and let my heart achieve a resting heart rate again first.
Okay, I’m cheating here. This is actually a chocolate bar. http://tea-room.stores.yahoo.net/michbarinwih.html
But what a chocolate bar! And it has tea in it! The taste is delicious, and there are most definitely strong caramel notes here. The fact that they are coming from a tea makes it even more awesome since they are so strong. I don’t get much honeybush flavour, and I think I’d love this even more if the chocolate was a tad darker, but you know what? This is still one darn delicious chocolate bar. With tea in it!
This is almost like drinking chamomile on steroids: it has a surprisingly rich flavor for a tisane. A very pleasant brew.
A fragrant, opulent tea that’s suitable for serving to company. A dear friend of mine brought this to me from Savannah, and I brewed every leaf.
