Bought at a tea shop in Malford, Pennsylvania for $1.50 per ounce. This one wasn’t bad, but it left a little bit to be desired. The gunpowder green tea itself was very good, it had that nice mellow smokiness I love in a gunpowder. Where this tea fell short was in the peppermint. The mint leaves were very fine, mostly brown particles and were pretty bland as far as scent and flavor goes. There was a little bit of a mellow mint flavor present but it wasn’t as crisp as I had hoped. Not the greatest gunpowder mint, but for the price it was satisfactory. Definitely a casual everyday cup.

My name is Kyle. I love good tea, a good book, the great outdoors, and I am passionate about music. I also find enjoyment in writing and mountain biking here in beautiful Central Oregon.

Tea is a hugely misunderstood and under-appreciated gift in the western world, and my hope is to spread the gift of quality tea. It is communion between the passion of man and the raw beauty of nature. It is art, and it is therapy. I hope you enjoy my writings.
