From Adagio Teas

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.

I really wish I tasted some of that pepper from the description.

This was brewed using boiling water for 6 min. The tea smells great before and after steeping, but it has a sharp taste that I don’t appreciate.

I try to drink tea without sugar or milk, but it may be needed here. Toward the end of the cup, I started eating a red bean cake, and the sweetness of the cake gave the tea a nicer effect.

Next time, I will add a little rock sugar and see how that goes.

Tasty isnt bad but the caffiene is what makes this one a staple.

A very refreshing tea. It has an interesting flavor that I don’t come across too often.

It’s… dare I say it… very very weak. I used 2 heaped teaspoons in a 350ml cup, and it honestly tastes of water.

Anyone have any idea why? I have a 45g bag, which ran me 11 euro, and I don’t want to put it to waste.

Clean, buttery, smooth and silky come to mind with earth tones toward the end. Great black tea from the Adaigo sample set.

blah and one dimensional; definately no “pepper notes”. I can find nothing in my cup to justify it being among the highest priced of the adagios

Great Tea for mornings and coffee substitute, I use a tea spoon of German rock sugar to make it more pleasant for early mornings. I use the same leaves 3-4 times so its great for study sessions.
