Rolled green teas

by Bakkoi » Aug 12th, '11, 21:32

Tea fanatics,

Are there any types of rolled green teas besides gunpowder? Maybe I've just had some lousy gunpowder, but what I've had always tastes nasty and bitter.

Gunpowder is scary tea ... cheap, not good, not wrth investigating nor investing.

There are better rolled greens, TeaSpring had some, but I did not try it.

The Yang Yan Gou Qing looks good... but is there anywhere I can buy it organic?

Also, why no love for gunpowder tea? Is it just sort of a low-end kind of tea to begin with?

Most of us are likely gunpowder phobic which carries over to most any rolled green.

There are just so many great greens that are not rolled ... after a few bad experiences with a rolled green, I just moved on and never looked back.

yong xi huo qing is my favorite rolled green.

yang yan gou qing, strictly speaking, is a curled green, not rolled green like gunpowder.

Gunpowder can be made nice, but the nice ones are more costly than most people would like to pay for a gunpowder, so nobody wants to sell it. Besides, the main market of it (Africa) like the rough ones better.
