From Simple Loose Leaf

Named for its shape, Gunpowder is one of the most popular teas throughout Asia. Our harvesters use a special rolling technique to craft these shiny, compact nuggets of tea out of the freshest, sweetest leaves. The result is immaculately clean, translucent liquor with a smooth, round taste followed by the subtle aftertaste of fresh green leaves.

Brewing Instructions
2 – 3 tsp or 2.3 g of tea for every 8 oz of water. 180°F , steep for 2 to 3 minutes.

Backlog:

A really high quality gunpowder green, I love that this is organic. A pleasant, smooth texture … brothy. Thick and silky. It has the flavor of lima beans … only sweeter. Buttery with a toasted nut tone. A very clean and fresh taste.

This tea was part of the March Selection Club I feel that part of the fun in signing up for a tea club is the chance to discover something new so when I selecting my teas for the March Selection Club, I decided to break out of the box a little so to speak, I selected two teas that wouldn’t normally appeal to me. I’ve never really been a fan of gunpowder green tea, oftentimes it is either heavily smoky or astringent and those types of flavors have never appealed to me. Up until now I haven’t found one that I would consider finishing a full cup of, but this tea was different, there was only a subtle smoky flavor that I found pleasant, rather than overwhelming. Even though this is a tea I wouldn’t order again, I’m not really a fan of smoky teas no matter how subtle, I would highly recommend it to those of you who do enjoy them. The quality of this tea is wonderful and it’s organic to boot. I’m really glad I selected this tea for my March box, it gives me hope that one day I may enjoy a small handful of smoky teas.
