Tea 5/11 of the tea I got from M&K’s etsy shop. I got a green tea sampler pack (10 teas) + they threw in one sample which was also a green tea :). Each of the samples I got were enough for 2-3 “servings” of tea.I steeped half of the sample I got in 3min in 12 oz of 175 degree F water. The dry leaves of the tea are like small black pebbles, but after infusing they unravel. Very pretty. I was concerned at first I over leafed the tea but after tasting it it was fine. I got a mildly smoky and roasted flavour that almost made the tea seem like a black tea. I have a Houjicha roasted tea I got from a tea swap about 5 months ago, and although It is nice, I think the smokey flavour is a bit much for me (although my husband loves it). However, with this gunpowder tea I like the mild smokey/roasted flavour: it’s enough for interest and taste but not too much that it upsets my stomach. Very nice.
This may be a repurchase for me in the future!
Flavors: Roasted, Smoke
