I don’t mean that in a bad way. I got a half pound box of this for $1.99 in China Town.
I’ve tried this tea so many ways. Iced, cold brewed, hot, mixed with stuff and in the end, I prefer it hot with mint (like a sort of Moroccan Mint without the sugar) or cold brewed with fresh fruit (straining the fruit and tea leaves out after). The gunpowder green is robust enough to not be overpowered by the mint or fruit.
By itself, the tea is pretty good. A little bit smokey. It’s not the highest quality tea, but for $1.99, I’m not expecting it to be. For the price point, it’s a really good deal.
One negative is it’s very dusty, so even after straining, there is a bit of sediment on the bottom of my cup.
