Yunnan Jig is a black tea from the Yunnan province of China, the birthplace of tea itself. Yunnan black tea is easily identified by its abundance of soft golden tips, and savory cocoa and black pepper flavors. It is a very forgiving tea; will not taste bitter when over-steeped. Our Yunnan Jig black tea has a sweet, almost creamy aroma. Rich and savory flavor, with a slight cocoa powder finish. Earthy and spicy and soft, smooth mouthfeel and finish. Classic Yunnan. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Good black tea. Strong and bold. Great color when brewed.

      I like this tea when it's in blends but I didn't care too much for it by itself

      Classic yunnan. Can't go wrong. Well balanced and easy to drink.

      Fantastic black tea, bold with not too much astringency. Holds up well to several infusions.

      This cane to me as a “freebie” with another order. I love black teas and I tend to be kind of picky.... but I liked this and I will order more!

      Delicate black tea. So great and strong flavor. High quality

      Amazing tea. This is totally my cup of tea. It has a hint of chocolate/cocoa. Very good!!!!

      This is a fantastic smooth and rich black tea, no bitterness whatsoever. It's perfection with a splash of cream, and maybe a little sugar when I want to be indulgent. It's a really good complement to sweet pastries or dessert as well.

      Loved this brew, was a nice sample to get. Lighter in color for most of my black teas, but tasted great. Was a nice cup in the afternoon. Wonderful flavor.

      Not bad! A super mild black tea that has less of the boldness some people dislike so much in, say, breakfast teas. A pretty middle-of-the-aisle tea.

      A tasty golden black tea worth trying at a better price



      This is my favorite Adagio tea and I drink it every morning. It is smooth even if I over brew it! The flavor is complex and oddly comforting. I enjoy many other Adagio flavors but this will always be my go-to.

      Very, very good. Mineral, with hints of cocoa. The black pepper comes through just at the end. This tea is amazing.

      My absolute favorite black tea from adagio. I just ordered more. I have a thermos sitting at my desk at work full of the pot I brewed this morning. It's a great strong cup, cocoa flavor, but soft and only lightly astringent.
