I bought a sample of this expecting “a superior gunpowder experience” but got a superior vegetable broth instead. There is no familiar gunpowder smokiness in this tea, at all. All you get is an ultimate vegetable flavor like broccoli and asparagus soup with a little bit of sweetness. The leaf is high quality, the brew is fragrant but the taste is just not working for me.

This is the highest grade of gunpowder tea we have offered. The leaves are from a fine plucking, rolled loosely into a sphere. The aroma of both the liquor and infusion have a sweet, vegetal note. Recommended for those seeking a superior gunpowder experience.
