I am trying to sip down some of my teas before ordering new ones, but that hasn’t exactly been working out, as I have definitely not slowed down on ordering in the meantime. I only have enough of this to make another pot or two, but maybe I will just wind up sending it off to someone…

This is probably my favorite Teavana tea ever. It’s malty and chocolatey, earthy and sweet, and quite robust without being astringent, if that makes sense…Also, I did brew this probably too strongly last night, but that was what I was in the mood for!

Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Malt, Scotch

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 8 tsp 24 OZ / 709 ML

Your post could be my post! I’m not allowed to buy any tea until my sipdown extravaganza is over (or maybe until I get to 300…still trying to decide). So far I’ve been pretty good, but it’s also been really hard!

Black dragon pearl is also probably my favorite teavana tea ever, although I feel that the current version is paled by their original offering from years ago. Probably my imagination…

Your sipdown extravaganza seems to be going well. I can’t believe you have so many teas! Someday soon I need to count mine and try to update my Steepster cupboard. I’m probably not as far behind you in number as I’d like to think!

I only just discovered Teavana’s Black Dragon Pearls. I don’t know why I never purchased them before this December…

I’ve been looking at your cupboard, & will be sending you some teas that you’re lacking soon, hahaha

That’s sweet of you, but don’t feel like you need to send me anything…!

Bio

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
