Once upon a time a young English clerk thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder, and the name was born! This is the best grade available which uses only the smallest nuggets. A full bodied cup with a slightly nutty flavor, this is an ideal every day green tea at a 'buy 'em by the barrel price'.
Good body and nutty green tea taste
Medium green with golden notes
Country of Origin
I bought this as a gift for my son in Colorado, who expressly asked for it. I can't say how it tastes, but he loves it, and apparently can't get it out there.
I've always been a fan of gunpowder teas but this pinhead gunpowder tea is the best one that I've tried! It has a smoky aroma and aftertaste that is amazing! If you like strong green teas or are a fan of gunpowder teas and are wondering if you should try this one, definitely go for it! I will be ordering more as soon as I run out.
If you like green teas that have a strong flavor, then this is a great one to try. Brew it at the proper temperature and for the right amount of time, and you'll have an excellent cup of tea waiting for you. This is now my favorite green tea!
Gunpowder tea has been one of my favorites for years. I keep some at work so I can have it there instead of the tea bags provided for free. I use it as a base when I am experimenting with adding flavorings and I also use it for iced tea, usually adding some spearmint or peppermint, but occasionally other ingredients such cinnamon or ginger. It is great by itself and very flexible in making your own blends.
A nice change of pace from the black teas I usually drink. Strong for a green tea, I use the Lemon Crystal Rock Sugar to enhance the flavor.
