Muddy looking. Smells more mellow or flat than more gunpowders I have tried…

It’s not awful. Actually…it’s pretty tame. Tastes more like a usual green tea and not a gunpowder.

Not really sure how to rate this one…because it’s not yucky but it’s not what I would call a green tea. I was thinking about rating it on taste but that wouldn’t be the gunpowder rating…so…I might just stay neutral on it.

Again not a bad taste…mellow

but not necessarily a gunpowder taste or feel in my book either. If you are looking for a true gunpowder this isn’t it. If you want to drink a cup to drink a cup…it’s not bad.


Yeah, I wasn’t really a big fan of this tea either, as you might have guessed.


Glad I got to try it tho! Thanks!

Apparently I was gripped in a fit of insanity this morning because I decided to re-steep the leaves from the last cup. The tea was even muddier than before (I was hoping it would be less) and the flavour still unimpressive. Bleh.


Experiment fail. Wait a second, here come the sad “wah waaaah” horns…

Bleh indeed.
