Good with Mint
This is a good basic green tea with a fairly strong flavor. I think it is especially good with spearmint, also sold in bulk by Enjoying Tea.

I really enjoy this delicate tea, it requires a short brewing time or it can get bitter. (any more than a couple min). But the flavor is light and somewhat reminds me of nori. plus there is nothing more fun than telling someone you're drinking gunpowder.

No other gunpowder tea I've had even comes close to the flavor of this variety. Outstanding production.

This was a high quality gunpowder. The pellets were nice and small indicating that they used the smaller, younger leaves.

Pingshui Gunpowder Green Tea
Item arrived in a timely manner, very securely packaged. Boiling water poured over a tea-spoon of these rolled tea leaves, produced a burst of distinct flavor, after approximately 3 minutes. A great way to start the day !!

It describes the item very well
I've been drinking this tea excl;usively for only about 2 years and find it very satisfying. I have a cup in the morning and use the same tea for the afternoon. Holds its flavor very well.

I ordered this tea when my usual supplier of Organic Gunpowder was sold out. I drink it every morning and find this tea does not have the bite and campfire taste of many gunpowders. It is smooth and very enjoyable. Just wish it was organic.

A very deep, earthy taste. Very good! I've had success steeping the leaves three times.

A favorite !
We LOVE gunpowder green in our house ! It had a slightly smoky but clean , light flavor and it blends well with other greens or whites. This is a must-have.

Called 'gunpowder' for a reason.
I have had many green teas and this was nothing like any of them. You definitely need to use less of this than you normally would for other green teas. If you use the normal amount that you normally would you will end up with a very smoky tasting brew. My wife said that it tasted like a cigarette butt had been steeped in the tea, which wasn't far from the truth. However, if brewed correctly you end up with a very good, albeit different tasting, cup of tea. This tea is definitely for green tea lovers only, or those who like to try different things.

A clean favorite
This tea has a good, clean green tea taste. It is concentrated (as another reviewer mentioned), making it a good value indeed. It's not as "light" tasting as a lot of other green teas. It has more depth while maintaining that clean, green taste that is typical of green teas. One of my current favorites. In my top three. I recommend you stick your nose in the tin and inhale deeply before dishing any of the tea out to brew. The smell of this tea has to be appreciated.

a very smokey flavor. took some practice to brew correctly, have to be careful not to use too much or the tea will be too strong. good value.
