drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas
14 tasting notes

My second attempt at new black teas was Yunnan Jig. After the pleasant surprise of enjoying last week’s English Breakfast so much, maybe my expectations were just too high. Yunnan Jig had a little bit sweeter smell than some black teas, but other than that nothing really jumped out at me. It wasn’t too bitter, although it did have the slight hint that accompanies some black teas. There just didn’t seem to be anything going for it. I was also disappointed that there was no sweetness that I was expecting given its aroma. While I didn’t mind drinking it, it wasn’t something that I was really enjoying either. Definitely a mellow black tea, I found it a little lacking.

Bio

My name is Brent Swisher, and I love tea.

About a year ago I really got into loose leaf teas. As part of my 2010 New Years resolutions, I will be trying a different tea every week and blogging my opinion on it. If you want to follow along, Check out http://teageek.org

Hopefully, you can read and enjoy it, and maybe we can both learn a little about tea along the way!
