drank Yunnan Golden Curls by Adagio Teas
1607 tasting notes

Guys guess what? – Adagio has lowered its international shipping charges – which means that after several years, I can buy from them again!

This is quite a neat looking tea – the leaves really do look like tight curls. I’ve often heard Yunnan teas described as ‘peppery’ but I think that this is the first time I’ve actually been able to taste what they’re taking about; it doesn’t bite the tongue like pepper does but there’s a spiciness in the back of the mouth at the end of each sip. There’s also a tannin flavour that I’m more familiar with in this tea type, though in this case it’s quite smooth unlike some teas where there’s almost a cigarette-like tone to them (bleh). This tea on the other hand is more like leather with a faint hint of cocoa-like bitterness in there.

I look forward to trying more teas in Adagio’s Master collection especially – they’ve added quite a few new ones since I last purchased from them.

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!)
