Formosa Gunpowder Tea

A smooth, fresh classic green tea flavour. Lighter tasting than our Pinhead Gunpowder, this Formosa Gunpowder has a captivating green tea taste.

Taste Notes : Smooth
Origin : Taiwan

Delicious and great service

Wonderful, fresh tasting, full bodied tea.
Great service too, the team at Tugboat continue to work through the Covid19 lock down and will post your tea. Loose tea (especially good quality, reasonably priced loose tea) is tricky to find and I am very grateful the team are still working through this difficult time. I am lucky enough to live locally to the store (TR1) and as such they delivered to my home for free (observing social distancing on delivery) on the same day that I ordered. Going above and beyond normal service is what people will remember after lock down, I will be happy to buy again and highly recommend.

This is a delicious and strong flavoured green tea. I drink gallons of green tea, and this one is best to start the day before I go for a run, and then in the afternoon for top ups to keep me going at work. A top quality brew.

Really enjoyable tea, I drink at least 3 pots of it a day. I love the gunpowder variations the little pellets are really aesthetically pleasing to me for some reason. Friendly handwritten note in my package and fast postage at reasonable price. Happy I hopped local and will continue to do so
