Tasting Notes:

Our Organic Black Pearls are a rare Spring-harvested black tea, grown and harvested in Fengqing Yunnan Province, China, in a wild, mountainous and misty region. The tea trees are a Camellia sinensis assamica cultivar, grown at an altitude of 4000 meters. Then the tea is hand-picked and expertly rolled from 30 premium quality leaves and fresh succulent buds into a large pearl-like shape before the leaves dry. The resulting large pearls unfurl to dramatic proportions while steeping, revealing aromatic earthy tones of caramelized sugar with undertones of chocolate. After this exquisitely smooth tea experience, you will covet Black Dragon Pearls as the legendary gems they were inspired by.

Great tea

I live in Texas so iced tea is pretty much the standard here. I like to make a pitcher of this tea with fresh cut mint. Pour it over ice and it's fantastic. You might think it's a little pricey but these balls can be brewed multiple times without sacrificing strength.

Perfect for busy mornings

What can I say other than I love these little guys. So easy and convenient to drop a few into a mug and pour in the water. I just leave them in as I drink it as well. The large leafs stay at the bottom and don’t mix in easily which is nice. The flavor is perfect with a full body and nice earthy tones. It’s easy to add or subtract out a little ball if you want more or less flavor. Again perfect for a busy morning when you don’t have much time.


Love these pearls!

I love these little tea pearls. I can definitely pick up cocoa and earthy flavors. I also love watching them unfurl as they brew.

Good Afternoon Tea

I wasn't sure with the Cocoa Notes but when I read other reviews I decided to try this. It was a nice surprise. Very Mild so great for an afternoon tea. If you take cream in your tea as I do, wait before adding. With this tea I don't use it as I have noticed with other reviewers. Great heads up to them. I prefer Russian Caravan to wake me up in the mornings but love this for a nice afternoon/evening tea.

This tea is superb. It has a very nice distinctive flavor and is very smooth. It leaves a mild mouthfeel that can be described as velvety. I love to watch the pearls unfurl when I first add them to the water. I will be getting more when I run out. I would definitely recommend this product.
