Gunpowder green tea is a great breakfast and “coffee break” green tea.
It is recommended for people trying to reduce their coffee intake, as the taste appeals to coffee lovers.
The highest quality gunpowder teas have a naturally sweet and soothingly mellow taste. In the better grades, the pungency is balanced and smooth, rather than harsh.
These brewed teas may occasionally have a hint of smoky notes, and there is usually a light lemon aftertaste.
