drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas
1612 tasting notes

My first taste of Yunnan! The leaves were longer than I’m used to seeing but it was neat watching them expand and unfurl while they steeped (5 minutes).

I’m not entirely sure what they meant by ‘peppery’ in the description, to me it tastes more smokey but with a cleaner, vegetale undertone almost like what you’d get in a green tea maybe.

This is one I’ll have to experiment with the steeping time more, but I think it’s quite enjoyable thus far. It’s robust enough that it’d probably be a good wake-me-up tea to have in the morning.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
