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

      Very good. Smooth flavor and no bitterness. Good option for a black tea

      One of my favorite breakfast teas. Hardly no astringency and goes down smooth.

      It was love at first sip for me with this tea. It's delicious hot or cold, sweetened or not sweetened, with milk or plain - just all around super good. The description and reviews saying it has a naturally faint chocolatey taste are dead on. I've tried and loved a lot of teas from Adagio, but this is the first one I felt compelled to buy an entire pound of.

      A lovely black tea with no astringency, could easily be an "every morning" tea. A bold flavor without being overwhelming.

    • 

      Strong earthy taste, hard to overstep, overall a good morning tea

    • 

      Strong, smooth black tea. I enjoy it very much. Also a nice base to add other flavors

      Beautiful black and gold Tea. A lovely, smooth flavor. A bit malty, with just a tad of astringency. I managed 4 steeps out of one serving!

      Steeped (1) 200F 4min, (2-4) 5min

      I have absolutely no idea how I managed to do this but it somehow tasted a little astringent. It was super earthy and deep in flavor and quite enjoyable.

      This is a strong, earthy black tea. I prefer this one with a bit of sugar but no milk. Good on its own or with food.

      Incredible! The flavor is bold and strong, but there's almost no astringency! There's a strong taste of dark chocolate.

    • 

      I brewed this one at 212 for a long time and it actually didn't get bitter! It's deep and rich, full of flavor and just a bit earthy. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and will be buying a bigger bag!

      Brew #1: 212F for 3 minutes with rock sugar added

      To me, this tea is a bit on the stronger side and is suited more for a morning pick-me-up rather than an afternoon sipper. I'm not picking up many bitter notes from this tea. There is some astringency present but not enough to turn me off from it.

      Brew #2: 212F for 4 minutes with rock sugar added

      I liked this tea enough to try a second steeping; the first round did pack enough flavor that I thought it might be worth a shot. It was fairly decent a second around.

      I can't think of any reason this tea doesn't deserve five stars! It's a wonderful solid black tea. I do usually prefer flavored blacks, but this tea is very good, very tasty. It honestly reminds me of basic orange pekoe - my tastes are apparently not refined enough to pick up on the "black pepper" and other flavors. I really enjoyed this, and my kids did too! A major win!

    • 

      A very smooth, slightly malty black tea. It has a hint of sweetness and a pleasant astringency at the finish. Double points for no bitterness, even with a slightly longer steep.

    • 

      Mmmm....smooth black tea that goes down easily. I added a bit of rock sugar. Sweet but bold and good for multiple steeps.

    • 

      In dried form Yunnan Jig smells like sun baked earth accompanied by a sweet white pepper scent. The taste is sweet and earthy with a touch of malty cocoa. Equally good hot or iced. I found myself craving more of this tea soon after finishing the sample bag.

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

      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.
