I have only tried black tea without milk once, and it was a horrific experience. I bought a sample of Adagio’s Yunnan Gold, just to see if I could force myself to like it. Oh. My. Word. It’s amazing! None of the bitterness I’d previously experienced (I realise that was probably my brewing method), no horrid aftertaste… Just smooth, slightly peppery (I think) and delicious. I am so happy right now, I thought that I would never be able to drink black tea without milk, but now I am feeling much more confident. Just lovely.
Black tea from the Yunnan region of China. Yunnan tea is easily identified by its luscious soft leaves, and a unique peppery taste. The ‘Yunnan Gold’ as the name implies is an exceptional quality tea with beautiful gold-colored leaves and an abundance of rich peppery flavor. Allowed to take only one tea to a desert island, ‘Yunnan Gold’ would be the clear choice.
