From Adagio Teas

Green tea from the Guangdong province of China. Gunpowder tea, as the name implies, is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Continuing this bang-bang theme, our special-grade version of this tea is named after a year that saw lots of cannon action. Our ‘1812 Gunpowder’ produces a full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness. And mixes well with peppermint to produce a popular ‘Moroccan Mint’ tea.

Kinda nice green smokey flavor, kinda like a campfire or maybe a good cigar. Not bad though.

Roasty goodness. I don’t even consider this a green tea in my own mind, tastes almost like a black tea. The stuff chest hair is made of.

Three minutes of steeping time yields a nice vegetal flavor with some smokiness.

I usually mix in a little bit of casablanca twist to add a minty note, but gunpowder by itself is still delicious

A smokey darker green tea. Much hardier than your average Green tea but also much bolder.

Been drinking this all morning to get me started (and to punish myself for being a little late to work). This is my favorite smokey tea, though my experience is limited.

This tea is very easy to over steep. I drink this tea on the lighter side.

Didn’t enjoy this the first couple times I drank it, but I think that’s because I steeped it too long. I took my time this cup, timed it for exactly 3 minutes, and it came out delicious!

I did add some honey to it, just a bit though, so there was a little sweetness that balanced out the smokiness of the tea. This tea just moved up in my book.

Footnote: My girlfriend just tried it and said “it tastes like mud” and “it tastes like I licked a cigarette” so apparently it may not be good for everyone :)
