I think that this tea is too high in price, for the quality of the tea.
“Thanks Emilie! Peppery Toffee. That about sums it up! This is the Masters Collection. Not real sure how it differs from the other potential yunnans they have but I'm too tired to look it up....” Read full tasting note

Black tea from the Yunnan region of China. Its luscious, soft, curly, leaves, and a unique peppery taste easily identify Yunnan tea. This is an exceptional quality tea comprised exclusively of soft, golden-leaf buds with an unusual curled shape. The dry leaf yields aromas of roasted peppers and sweet, wet hay. As the tea steeps, the hay fades into the background in favor of aromas of warm toffee and leather. As the liquor cools, the body of this tea seems to fill out and finish with notes of sweet potatoes and of course the characteristic pepper that makes Yunnans so distinctive. 3g/8oz boiling water for 3-5min. Good for multiple infusions.

Gave this tea a try today. Really nice Yunnan Gold. I definitely preferred it to the Yunnan Jig. I remember that early on I loved Adagio’s Yunnan Gold but my last order or two was a bit disappointing. This Yunnan Golden Curls reminds me of the OLD Yunnan Gold. I must say, though, that I don’t think I’d pay $29 for 3 ounces.
As I was digging through some of my stash, I came across a sampling of this tea. It’s one that is no longer available through Adagio … I’m not sure if that’s because it’s been discontinued or if it’s because it’s temporarily sold out.
It’s a good golden Yunnan. Peppery but with a lovely sweet undertone of caramel. This is one of the best black teas that I’ve tried from Adagio.
Since it’s not currently available and I’m unsure of the age of the sampling that I have, I’m not going to rate it.
