A re-review of this tea.
Gunpowder green tea has become my favorite work-day tea. It’s inexpensive ($6/50g!), fuller-bodied to help me wake up, can “take a beating” (I.e. higher temps and longer steeping time without becoming bitter…accidentally let it steep at work for 7min (lower temp) and it was fine!). Although it doesn’t have the buttery or super vegetal taste I love in green tea, it is slightly smoky, which is an interesting change of pace, and a slight “green” taste. Overall it just works for me during work days where I don’t have time to worry about oversteeping and whatnot. I can def see myself trying different gunpowder teas and using them up quickly!
