Strong smoky taste. It’s not great on its own but it is a wonderful base for Moroccan Mint. Try it with 2 mint leaves per teaspoon.

Pretty good stuff for a grocery store brand. I wouldn’t say it’s stellar, but it’s definitely better than most bagged green tea. It has a good, full flavor, and is good for a couple of re-steepings.

This is good and high quality tea. Gunpowder tea is very unique and rich flavor. Smell is very pleasant. Taste is very velvety and there is no bitterness at all! Instant favorite tea I will buy more!

This stuff is delicious!

A very nice mellow green tea. It produced a golden liquor which tasted a little like apple and fresh grass. An enjoyable experience. This is also great for making Kombucha!

Just a decent tea to have when you just need to have some decent tea. Probably my favorite of Twinning’s loose-leaf tins, though I’ve yet to try the Prince of Wales Tea. Tastes like vegetables sprinkled with gunpowder.

Je laisse infuser ce thé vert un peu plus longtemps.
Ainsi, la force du thé vert permet de sortir agréablement du déjeuner. Je pense même qu’il aide à digérer.

I leave this green tea infuse a little longer.
Thus, the strength of green tea helps out nicely for lunch. I even think it helps to digest.
