My first gunpowder tea. Vegetal and a little almost smokey. Not bad, but not my favorite.
I’m very curious to try gunpowder! And after reading your post about what you got in the mail, I’m quite tempted to try that green tea sampler! But not yet, I just ordered a gunpowder sample from Harney. :D
Totally do it! The little box with the little tins is cute, and they seem to hold quite a lot. For both the two I tried so far, I used 4-5 tsp and barely made a dent. The gunpowder was so full, I accidently spilled some out on the counter opening it. I just measured one that I haven’t tried yet, and it was 20 tsp of tea. So even using 2 tsp like they suggest its 10 servings each. I really like green teas but don’t know the differences between varieties and thought this would be perfect!
I’m more focusing on Japanese greens at the moment but they have a Japanese Green sampler too! :D So I may grab that soon. I saw that it’s between 0.5 ounce and 1.5 ounces of each tea and that does seem like a lot. Hooray!
