drank Yunnan Noir by Adagio Teas
36 tasting notes

So good news… GOT MY ADAGIO SHIPMENT IN TODAY!!!!!! I was so pumped i bout dove into the box. This is one of the five i picked, basically, at random from the black tea list and was entirely to happy to have picked a Yunnan… funny thing though, i ended up picking 3 Yunnan and was ok with it.

I brewed at 3 minutes and 15 seconds at 195F. i added a small bit of honey and its really all it needed. First sip without sweetener, i picked up on a bold dark cocoa and maybe a little pepper, as well the aroma of the tea was strangely fruity and very sweet.

After the first couple small sips, i added honey and a smig of milk. This tea works very well with others, becoming very creamy and charming, building with the honey for a wonderful medley of flavors. As the tea cooled a bit, the tea flavor subsided a little and a natural fruitiness broke through. A perfect end to a damn near perfect tea.

I am a Yunnan fan and it just hit the spot for me. Thank you all for your suggestions and i’ll will talk to you all in the morning.
