This is the first gunpowder tea I’ve tried, so I must admit that I’m not quite sure what it is supposed to taste like! It was fun watch those tiny pellets expand into nice big tea leaves as I steeped it and there is an intriguing smoky aroma coming from my cup. There’s definitely quite a bit of smokiness to the flavor too…along with another taste that I can only think to describe as autumn leaves. It’s very robust and flavorful for a green tea and just the slightest astringent bite. Ordinarily, this isn’t the sort of thing I’d go for. But on a cold November day, a cup of tea that tastes like a burning leaf pile is somehow hitting the spot!
