drank Black Dragon Pearl by Teavana
239 tasting notes

Finished the last two pearls. I’ve found 2 pearls, 4 minutes, boiling water makes a good 16oz mug for me. 3 pearls and a bit shorter time if I want to have a resteep available. Woody and bold come to mind as descriptions. Still has a slight burnt/hardwood smoke edge to it. It adds a bit of complexity.

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
