From Art of Tea

Cultivated in the Pingshui region of northern China’s Zheijiang province, the motherland of gunpowder tea. Tender, young organic fair trade green tea leaves, rolled into small spheres resembling gunpowder, produce a grassy infusion with a slightly smoky flavor. A deeply renewing pick-me-up any time of day.

Steep Time: 3 minutes
Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified Green Tea Leaves
Origin: Zhejiang, China

It’s smoky and delicate. I know, strange to be both, but this somehow is. It’s got a toasted nut taste to it, as well as just a touch of grassiness. Very nice!

It’s pretty earthy for a green. Every once in a while I even get a sip that screams Pu-erh esque right in my face. And I like pu-erh so it’s fine but yea… really earthy. Nice and mellow to.
Surprisingly thin mouth feel when you would expect, from the earthiness, a very round, think feeling. So I would certify this as a light and airy tea. Not refreshing though since I don’t consider anything earthy as being very refreshing.
All of the vegitality of greens are absent but there is an excellent toastiness which pairs with the earth very well.
Yum.

Tasty, but smokier than I expected. Pretty earthy tasting for a green tea.
