From t Leaf T

A high grade gunpowder tea. Large tender leaves are rolled into small, tight, evenly sized balls resembling gun pellets. These blossom under hot water to produce a full flavoured, refreshingly astringent infusion with a hint of smokiness.

I do not remember this tea being so delightful the first time I tasted it! Delicate, incredibly smooth with just a hint of smokiness and barely any astringency. Another inoffensive brew, almost like the elevator muzak of green teas…

Miss 5 chose this for me to drink today. She was also intrigued with a tea by the name of ‘gunpowder’. Not sure exactly how to describe it – It definitely tastes like a green tea, but if it’s possible it partially leans towards tasting like an oolong.

The dry leaves didn’t exactly look like in the picture , not rolled up into grey-green pellets but close, there were also little sticks/stems in the mixture. The description said large leaves rolled up but when wet it was just cut pieces of large-ish leaves.

I recommend this tea but it’s not something I would stock up on. I’m not a huge fan of green tea anyhow but am trying as many tea samples as possible so had to give this a go.

Before tasting this green tea, I’d decided I didn’t like green teas. This tea is quite different from what I’d associated with green tea – it’s more delicate on the palate and (like miss sweet says) not too astringent.
