In all honestly I couldn’t remember if I owned an Irish Breakfast this morning, when looking for an Irish inspo tea, and I didn’t want to do a matcha – so instead I just grabbed the first green tea I could find from my recent Bloom Teas order…
I don’t really like Gunpowder Green tea – I think I have ONE blend that it tastes nice in and it’s alright in a good quality Moroccan Mint but overall I find this style/grade of tea tastes incredibly course and unrefined. Very abrasively vegetal, without much redeeming qualities to it. The one thing it has going for it is body – which is, I think, why it does work in Moroccan Mint. Plus appearance, I suppose.
So this was fine, for a Gunpowder, but not… great. Didn’t expect it to be though.
