Reviews:

This is not a shy tea. It is flavourful and pungent, in a very good way. Cold, it's exciting and tingly on the tongue. Hot, it's soothing and a sure fire hit for the cold and flu season as it has all of the medicinal properties you could ask for with none of the medicinal flavours you'd associate with the usual cold/flu tea remedies. It's a revelation, surely.

My new favorite (previously Moroccan Mint, which I still love but...), I have a cup every morning, the bold lemon flavor helps wake me up but is not overwhelming or artificial. The gunpowder is strong enough to hold its own through the zing. I find it (gunpowder in general) easier/more forgiving than most green teas to brew. If you have any affinity for green teas, give this a shot.
