  • Description:

    Most of Dragon Pearl tea comes from Fengqing in Yunnan. We found ours in Guangxi province, and immediately liked it. It has longer leaves, a sweeter flavor, and insanely intense chocolate scent. To be more precise, it smells exactly like the cocoa beans soaked in maltose syrup would. Black Pearl has a mellow flavor, with cocoa notes present in all steeps.

    Awesome daily black tea

    Awesome everyday black tea. It has a earthy taste but it's not bitter, even with long infusions. Hints of chocolate and jam. It has a strong and sweet aftertaste. I recommend this solid tea

    Full body flavor and a little stale :|

    This was my favorite black tea for a long time. I used to buy it directly at a Teavana store at a local mall. I tried ordering this product from teadaw and even though the expiration date was far in the future, the tea does not brew well and seems stale. Other than an old shipment this tea has a full body, hints of chocolate and a great flavor. You only need a couple of these little balls to brew a great cup of tea. Highly recommended if fresh :)

    Amazing cup of tea but a pain to brew

    I ordered these in my quest for the best cup of tea. While these do make an amazing and flavorful cup of tea they can be difficult to brew. These little pearls, when put in an infuser take a long time to steep and often seem to not loosen up enough. For me, at least, by the time I felt they made an appropriate strength of tea the water was lukewarm at best. I've tried many different styles and nothing works for me. So, while the tea is good, I only give the four stars for the brew time.

    I love to drink it with maple sugar

    Wonderful fragrance! As the moment that hot water reaches these little pearls, the chocolate smell comes out. I like the smell. If you add one or two spoon of sugar, I mean, especial maple sugar, it tastes even better.
