Not what I expected
Posted by Reviewer1327109 on Nov 25, 2012
I have been drinking gunpowder tea for a while and thought that buying organic would be a smart thing to do. Except this doesn't taste the same as what I have been drinking. I know there are many different green teas but I didn't know that the gunpowder green tea also can differ from brand to brand. This has a smokey taste which I don't like. Also the colour is not the same; as someone else has already mentioned it is yellow/brown and not as green as what I was used to. It's still quite drinkable. I'll finish this package but won't order this again.

It has a lovely taste, is mild and doe not get bitter.

Great value though the flavor is lighter than what I expected, it lack the slight bitterness from normal green tea. But consider the price, I would say fair buy. If you looking for some stronger green tea like me, you can try the "Starwest Botanicals, Organic Chunmee Green" also from iherb. Just an extra 2 bucks, taste a bit better.

Ok for everyday drinking

Looking at the price, it is an alright tea for everyday drinking. Nothing uber fantastic though

This tea is not true gunpowder. It's loose leaf, as opposed to the tightly wound ball of true gunpowder green. Also, has no flavor and leaves a nasty aftertaste in my mouth. Will not purchase again.
so so green tea

At least 200 cups of green tea depending on how you do it is a superb value for at $12.35. The quality is quite exceptional.
Great price, great tea

I've tried dozens of green teas but this is one of my favorites, and makes several good cups from one bunch of tea leaves
