From Narien Teas

Straight from Narien Teas website:

The coiled, shiny, army-green and charcoal-gray leaves of Gunpowder green have a nutty, toasted, seaweed-like aroma. As they brew and open, they yield aromas of iodine, wet fallen leaves, boiled dinosaur kale, dry tobacco and spearmint. The dense leaves unfurl more with each successive infusion, but retain their dark green color and rich green aroma. They produce a clear, butter-hued brew with clean scents of pine, tobacco and mint. Its flavor is remarkably refreshing. Tobacco dominates while hints of dry sandalwood, oak, nuts, honey, grass, copper and mint round out the infusion. The aftertaste is short and clean, making it a great after-dinner drink. It’s also delicious with bold, masculine foods, like grilled meats and lamb tagines.

For a simple cup of tea, brew Gunpowder with steaming water. Use one heaping teaspoon per cup water. Infuse for one to two minutes. Reinfuse as desired. Later infusions of Gunpowder are fuller, greener, deeper and more honeyed than the first.

This was actually better than expected. To be fair, I’m not a fan of nutty or grassy teas and I did steep this a little bit too long, but I will definitely give credit where credit is due. Although slightly bitter, it is very forgiving and clean despite the error. I don’t really get the hint of pine or sandalwood though. Overall, it’s not bad.

I just finished a cup of this tea… so the memories are still fresh in my head. Simply delightful is the best way to describe this tea. I followed the instructions provided on the bag of tea, added a bit of honey and the flavors of roasted nuts and pine were heightened. This tea has complex flavors, but they blend together harmoniously. Definitely recommend trying this!
