I haven’t had Gunpowder Green for quite a long time and I have no idea why I have gone so long without it.
A lovely taste and colour.

I like this tea. I can get three steepings of 3 minutes, for a total of 9 minutes out of it.
The tea brews up yellow and has a warm, strong taste that isn’t too grassy.
In dry form, the tea looks green and is a combination of gunpowder pellets and smaller material. I use a finer sieve when brewing.
3 teaapoons to 250 ml of water.
You can always count on Twinings. This is a nice tea, lighter and less smoky than other gunpowder teas I have tried, but enough smokiness and sweetness to make for a very enjoyable cup. I steeped it 3 times, and probably could have gone at least once more.
I didn’t get around to making tea until after lunchtime today, so I decided to take a break from my recent steady diet of blacks to return to one of my all-time favorites. The subtle but entirely unique flavor of gunpowder green never disappoints. One of my perennial afternoon staples!
