drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas
501 tasting notes

This is the first and only Yunnan tea that I have tried so far, and after drinking it for the last couple of months, I have to say that I like it quite a bit.

I don’t taste the peppery-ness that most people say is in this (and all?) Yunnan teas, but I also flavour with a bit of milk and sugar. This is a very earthy flavour with some maltyness and is deliciously smooth and not bitter at all despite steeping it past what I normally would (I forgot to hit the start button on the timer). I’ll steep the next steep longer. I also get hints of cocoa, more the cooler it gets, which I greatly enjoy.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Bio

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
