This tea looks like green gunpowder tea only black and glossy. It has its own flavor and scent…nutmeg. This is my first tea that had notes of nutmeg in it. Its also in the smell. The tea has a light astringency and a full mouthfeel. No bitterness and smooth, it really has a taste all its own. Not a tea I want to drink all the time, but nice once in a while.
China Black Gunpowder (ZK31)
This black tea, like its green cousin, is rolled tightly to preserve freshness. It has a glossy sheen, characteristic of this leaf style. The flavor is round and full, and the taste is clean and refreshing. Gentle hints of nutmeg enhance this selection.
