drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas
1528 tasting notes

I tried it with milk this morning and I don’t think it added anything to to the tea, if anything it looses much of it’s subtleties. Still not tasting any pepper.

For me I only get pepper through the smell and sometimes that smell will translate to a subtle pepper taste. And even then I don’t think “mmm, pepper” but more like “I bet that’s what they meant by pepper”.

That’s what I thought too, but quite a few people have said that they actually get a taste similar to fresh-ground black pepper out of their Yunnan teas. shrugs

Auggy

Well maybe I need to make better Yunnan choices to get the full pepper flavor.

Jillian

Well for all we know it’s all a huge joke the tea someliers like to play on unsuspecting newbies, lol “Find the mythical pepper-flavoured tea!”
XD

That’s what I’m thinking! It’s like the Where’s Waldo of tea flavors… and Waldo has walked off the page but we keep looking. Hehe.

Profile

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!)
