A long, long, long time ago, before I discovered oolongs, I loved and drank only black teas. After discovering oolongs I put blacks on the back burner, until I tried Yunnan Gold. This tea is one of my morning staples now. And really changed my mind about shelving black teas. It is so smooth and mellow and I love the peppery aroma. And from the different ones I've tried so far, Adagio's is great.
