The dry aroma of Jennifer’s Tea Garden’s Gunpowder Mint Tea is Smoky, Minty, Green Tea, White Tea, Floral…yes…I can smell all of those things with a single sniff!
The wet aroma is more of a stereotypical gunpowder tea smell…with a little extra something…maybe it’s the combo of the Jasmine and Mint I am smelling.
The color: is a light Yellow-Green.
As for the taste…this has a unique gunpowder type taste. It’s not a gunpowdery-grass-smoky as some are but the mint is very nicely done and not too over the top and the Jasmine gives it a little extra something too! I think the addition of the white tea is also a nice touch! It’s smoother than I expected…it was a pleasant surprise, indeed!
The aftertaste is NOT grassy…it’s slightly floral-sweet with a very small hint of smoke trying to hide underneath. There is a lovely smoothness to the aftertaste too.
I really like this tea! Great job and a THUMBS UP to Jennifer’s Tea Garden!
