A headache is pressing in on my brain after a night spent up with a server on-call issue. Dragon balls are just the thing! Their strong, full-bodied sassiness is willing to hold my head with gentle soothing motions while the caffeine kicks butt, drives out the pain and gives me energy to spare.
The tea brews up into a copper brown liquor that smells sweet. The balls release themselves from the tight black pearls and expand into full chocolate brown leaves, a process that never fails to amuse. There are notes of cocoa, caramel, and a touch of earthiness in the taste.
The only bad thing? I’m now out of dragon balls. I guess you could say that I have no balls.
