I don’t like many black teas, but I’ve been widening my tastes lately, and what better to start off than dragon balls – sorry – pearls.

These are huge. If you’ve had green dragon pearls before, these are about three times the diameter. They smelled good, I dropped two in a mug, and steeped. I was surprised at how floaty the leaves were. It was hard not to swallow them too, unlike green dragon pearls. I think this was due to many stems in the cup.

The flavour was rich but not overwhelming. It had something in there I can’t quite describe, sort of a subtle fullness. Definitely going to drink again, maybe purchase!

Mr. Furrow, I believe that subtle fullness you describe is the fifth taste, Umami. The black dragon pearls are also one of my favorites.
