I received this as a gift at Christmas and am just now giving it a chance. It’s terrible. I have this idea that I don’t like gunpowder but I’m comparing with low-quality stuff I’ve had in the past. Shameful that I haven’t given it its dues. But, the experience of really smokey gunpowder put me off.
So, I thought I’d go Moroccan-inspired with this and added some fresh mint leaves to my cup. I don’t like mint in tea in general, but for some reason I always like it this way.
Okay. This is kind of smokey. Also, it came out bitter. Hm. It’s drinkable. I will give it another chance at some point, with a shorter steeping time.
