From Seven Cups

Gunpowder style tea is named after the round shiny dried tea leaves which has a very long history of tea production. The traditional strong flavor has been popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa for centuries. You can easily appreciate the robust taste of our certified organic Gunpowder by itself or pair it with your favorite flavorings. We especially enjoy this tea with mint or as iced tea.

Oh my goodness. At this price, I never would have thought that this tea would be as good at is it really is. The brew never goes bitter, a true testament to its quality. It lasts for at least five steepings of full flavor. Yet another testament. It does not have the delicate nuances of the finer green teas. But that cannot be expected from an everyday green tea. Bravo, Seven Cups for finding and promoting this wonderful, cheap tea!
