My experience with Twinings has been that, regardless of the variety or blend, I can always count on a solid nice tasting tea at a very reasonable price. Such is the case with the Gunpowder Green tea.

This tea, when steeped at 195 degrees for three minutes, produced a color similar to apple cider. The flavor was a full green tea taste without any bitterness whatsoever.

I’m not a huge green tea fan, but I do enjoy the finer teas of this classification. I would definitely add this selection to that list. The little rolled up pre-steeped tea “pellets” (from which the “gunpowder” name originates) are fun too!

I ventured into the world of serious tea drinking in the Summer of 2011. I started out slowly and gently with bagged tea but climbed to the incredible flavorful heights of loose leaf teas in October of that year. Once you go leaf, you never go bag (except when you get free samples)!
