Adagio Teas - Yunnan Gold

Characteristics

  • Nose: Medium Tea Aromas (10/10)
  • Brew: Medium Brown
  • First Note: Moist refreshing clean tea (9/10)
  • Body: Exceptionally smooth flavor throughout the sip (9/10)
  • Finish: Very clean finish, pure to tea taste, no dry bite (9/10)

Brew

Volume tea: 5 heaping teaspoons
Water: 1200ml
Temp: 212*
Time: 3 Minutes

Verdict

This is by far one of my favorite black teas to date. It has a smooth aroma and flavor note consistent throughout the entire sip. It was described by another person as tasting like a nice milk tea minus the sugar and cream - for what it's worth. The only downside is the tea it requires a lot of tea (volume) to hit the right mass for a brew as the leafs are quite large. I used the entire sample pack for this pot.

This tea was so good I attempted a second brew with the same time, just reducing water volume to 1000ml and got a fantastic second pot as well.
