Primatea’s pinhead gunpowder has been a staple tea in our home for more than a year now. We just prefer it to be iced but it tastes good when hot too. The tea is quite affordable than most other green teas and it just provides you the quality that you expect. A steep at 180 degrees for about 3 minutes will give you a tea of superb quality. I never forget to buy this tea for myself and make sure that I never run out of it.

I love to freshen up with its crisp green tea flavor. I enjoy indulging myself in its distinct smokiness. It has a more subtle and smooth flavor than usual green teas. I would recommend looking out for the pellet size and shine on the tea pellets, as I learnt that small and shiny pellets indicate high quality and fresh tea.

I love to freshen up with its crisp green tea flavor. I only needed a small quantity to get a full strong cup as it expands considerably when infused. It has a natural bitterness which tastes nice if you can develop a taste for it; however, I prefer it with a little sugar which enhances its flavor.

I had read the reviews before ordering this tea. I completely agree with the other customers when they say that the tea wasn’t much by means of the aroma, but gradually grows on you. It is a wonderfully strong tea that you would like. I prefer to drink it hot because of its smoky flavor. If you like strong tea, you will surely fall in love with this variety. A great tea to keep you wake after those unavoidable afternoon meetings!

The compact pebbly look and the strong flavor is the reason why I am attracted towards this tea. This tea is a mixture of whole and partial leaves packed tiny. The aroma is not very strong, I had t almost touch the tea’s surface to smell the aroma. I prefer sipping this tea rather than gulping it down straightaway. There’s something about this tea which seems to be rather nourishing, however this point will be noticeable only by fitness freaks. This tea is perfect for early morning time, I usually have it around 3pm when I at my workplace. It also makes a good option for afternoon tea.

It gives a dark green colour and a distinct smoky taste. It leaves a slight coppery after taste. I tried the iced flavour made with ice, lemon and sugar and it tasted nice. Its Moroccan flavour, got by boiling the tea leaves and then adding mint and sugar, brings out yet another delicate nuance of its classic old taste. It makes for a strong cup of tea.
