Overpriced - plus their NYC shop quickly opened and closed in a flash about 9 years ago - but this was fun to try. Grassy but not bitter. Smooth and easy to drink hot. Never tried it iced.

It has too vegetal of an aroma, but the flavor is mild and not bad. I added cream and sugar.

Jan. 21st, 2012

This tea was barely like other gunpowder green tea, and much more like other high-grade Chinese green teas. The loose leaf is only loosely rolled, and looks quite delicate.

Aroma is vegetal and light, and suggests sweetness. There's no overt smokiness but there's a suggestion of camphor in the aroma, which I disli...

Color: pale yet thick brown color, nice heavy weight
Nose: green herbal nose, a little dirty and musky as well
Taste: on the front end there's a great smoked herbal flavor, on the midpallete the herbal flavor remains but there's a musty top soil flavor that replaces the smoked flavor, the finish is a musty-ness that ...

Pinhead Gunpowder from thepuriTea

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: China

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 28th, 2011

To my mind, these are not pinheads, which I think are supposed to be smaller than regular gunpowder tea, as they are pretty good sized. I brewed it for about a minute and found it to be floral and vegetal, but also seemed to carry some sesame seed in it. The second infusion was for 1.5 minutes and smelled more floral...

Virtually no aroma (which is fine with me). A mild but very good flavor. The strength of this tea is the fact that you don't notice it, you just enjoy it.

Java Green Gunpowder from Upton Tea Imports

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 11th, 2010

My first Indonesian tea sampled, and I was a bit disappointed, even though I like this style of tea.

This tea is considerably less smoky than most Chinese gunpowder teas I've had...only a moderate amount of smoke. It has a cool quality to the aroma, and a tangy flavor with some bitterness. More similar in all resp...
