Gunpowder is a classic green tea from Zhejiang province, China. As the name implies, Gunpowder tea is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble Gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness and a smooth mouthfeel. Blend Gunpowder tea with spearmint to create the famous 'Moroccan Mint' tea. Steep at 180°F for 2 minutes

      Great green tea taste. I can see this as a base to mix some of my herbal teas when I want to get a kick of caffine.

      My favorite gunpowder to date! Just the right amount of smokiness balanced with the vegetal notes makes this tea punchy without forgetting its a green tea at heart.

      I tried this tea to see what types of green tea is like. The smokiness of this isn’t for me but it was still a high quality green tea.

      Strong flavor. This is is a great kickstart for you in the morning.

      A very strong green tea flavor, this has a pleasant irony aftertaste, but that just might be the way I brewed it.

      Beautiful tea. Love the slight smokiness and full bodied green tea taste! My favorite!

      A little smoky, very flavorful with a nice mouthfeel!

      This is a good tea and isn't bitter if steeped correctly. Didn't leave a bitter taste on my tongue. Strong smell for a green . I liked the flavor which came out to be like a dark leafy green vegetable.

      A really straight forward gunpowder tea. Vegetal and a little smoky. Very high quality
