Superior Gunpowder Tea from Culinary Teas

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  Culinary Teas

Product Description: 

Superior Gunpowder tea has a greenish, full bodied, delectable bakey character with a hint of smokiness. The expansion of the leaf after infusion is remarkable. This tea will keep for a very long time due to the tight roll.

Taster’s Review:

My earliest experiences with gunpowder green tea were not positive.  But that really was not the tea’s fault – it was mine.  I used water that was too hot for the delicate green tea leaves, and as a result the liquor was bitter and not suitable to drink.

Since that time, I’ve learned how to brew green tea, and as I sit here, sipping on this Superior Gunpowder from Culinary Teas, I can’t help but feel a little sad at how dreadful I treated those gunpowder teas in the past.   Such a delightful tea, it really didn’t deserve such harsh treatment!

This is really quite divine!  The flavor is toasty with a delicious nutty flavor in the foreground.  There is a hint of smokiness in the background which is quite complimentary to the roasty-toasty flavor.  Some light vegetative notes round out the flavor of this cup.

I’m currently sipping my second infusion of this tea, and I think I prefer the second to the first.  It is sweeter and tastes a bit more even-toned and balanced than the first infusion, although both were quite lovely.  These leaves could even handle a third infusion!

An excellent gunpowder, this Superior Gunpowder from Culinary Teas.  It gets top marks!
