    Since I first tried this gunpowder green tea I haven't bothered buying any other. it's gorgeous and I'm addicted. Have been starting the day with this for years now.

    Aptly described in the marketing as much sweeter, less bitter than other gunpowders I've tried. Needs a good single layer of the tiny pearls covering the base of the infuser for best results. Manages a good 2-3 brews.

    Having tried a number of gunpowder teas I found this one too smokey in flavour with an unpleasant bitter aftertaste.
