Gunpowder No. 32 is a powerful loose-leaf Chinese green tea that evokes imagery of smoky campsites in the Cascades, the oaken richness of fine bourbon casks, and the depth and complexity of an herbal tonic. It tastes of smoky oak with slight notes of grassy, almost mint-like herbaceousness and a smooth, floral finish that gains depth as it steeps.
As you down cup after cup of this tea, something becomes clear - it’s a multilayered beast that evolves over time. Many traditions worldwide include brewing gunpowder tea in successive batches, allowing the flavor to grow and expand with each subsequent brew. What begins as a gentle, lightly smoky, herbal flavor changes drastically with re-brewing, growing in both power and bitterness over time.
