Called 'gunpowder' for a reason.
I have had many green teas and this was nothing like any of them. You definitely need to use less of this than you normally would for other green teas. If you use the normal amount that you normally would you will end up with a very smoky tasting brew. My wife said that it tasted like a cigarette butt had been steeped in the tea, which wasn't far from the truth. However, if brewed correctly you end up with a very good, albeit different tasting, cup of tea. This tea is definitely for green tea lovers only, or those who like to try different things.
