Gunpowder isn’t my favorite tea, so my rating may not be entirely fair. That said, I like this tea. It’s smoky and a little vegetal. Full-bodied and smooth. I wouldn’t drink it every day, but it’s a nice change of pace. If you like strong and smoky green teas, you might like it better.

I can’t compare Adagio’s gunpowder to other teas of the same style, because I haven’t had any in years. It does seem a little expensive — I usually think of gunpowder as a more economical tea.

I brew it as directed: 1 tsp per cup, 180 degree water, 2 minute steep.
