Quite possibly one of the blandest teas I have ever tasted, I tried this out of curiosity having tried Green Gunpowder I wanted to try the black tea equivalent. I found this devoid of any real flavour, taste or aroma from the dry leaves, to brewing to the cup.

I have always believed that gunpowder tea was tightly rolled balls of tea, with this they are present but a lot of this tea is just dust and leftovers and as such no real taste comes out.

The final brew is a golden colour but it just feels a real let down, OK it wasn’t expensive but I wouldn’t buy this again from this supplier as it really does taste of very little. Avoid
