drank Yunnan Gold by Adagio Teas
81 tasting notes
Another tea that comes to symbolize Yunnan and importantly comes close to Pu-Erh in the boldness and richness factor! Anyone can really smell the rich soily, minerally, a tad bit medicinal spicy , and when brewed imparts a wonderful complex mixture with a prominent leathery aroma. The brew itself is a rich composition of clay-like, minerally, peppery, with a dash of honey that is fairly noticeable. Its quite a tea almost similar to Teavana’s “Temple Peaks” yunnan equivalent, but without astringency, bitterness, and fully smooth medium bodied tea.

I’m a tea lover and a traveler. I believe in delving into cultures and cuisines. In so doing, I have found tea to be the most exciting and adventurous beverage in the world that has played a role in history and in the lives of many. Now that’s a shrub isn’t it!
Note: I may be a purist at times where some teas needs to be enjoyed naturally, yet I do enjoy many other teas that find its way into my palate!

Favorite Teas: Yunnan teas, the staple Assam and some Darjeeling, love Japanese greens, and “indie” teas either home grown or unfamiliar regions i.e. Turkey, Georgia, love Tisanes, Oolongs, some white teas, and my favorite staple: Chai teas.
