Another sample from Tea Licious. This tea smelled like Tetley tea bags, and so I have to say that I wasn’t shocked to find that it tasted just like them, too. For me, the only surprise was logging on to the website and seeing that this was in fact, a green tea. It tastes very much like a Ceylon tea. It had a slight astringency to it, but other than that, it was so close to the bagged teas of yesteryear that I would have sworn it was something else.

It’s not a bad tea, but it doesn’t stand out in any way, either.

Now here is something special, another of my favs. Here we have a traditional Chinese green. Earthy and slightly bitter, however takes on a smokey essence and serves to be a great green tea base if you are planning on doing some of your own blending. I am particularly fond of the gunpowder with peppermint and spearmint. Take this blend and steep for 3-4 minutes and enjoy with an Irish cream coffee creamer for a delicious shamrock latte. If you want to make it REALLY Irish, use instead Bailey’s Irish Cream and let the good times roll.

First off, thank you Tea Licious for the sample!

Quick Google search shows that Temple of Heaven is a common gunpowder tea. Dry leaves smell is very pleasant, sort of dark honey.

Steeped leaves unfurl quite a lot into deep green full leaves. The smell of steeped leaves is candy like with a hint of smoke and citrus.

Liquor is light brown orangey color, smells smokey and malty. Taste is quite bitter but pleasant bitterness. First seconds after a sip taste is very grassy which quickly becomes bolder. In a way it tastes much like Shui Xian or Da Hong Pao but with more bitterness and much bolder. Love the fact that flavor changes so much.
