drank Black Dragon Pearls by Teavana
1112 tasting notes

After reading The Purrfect Cup’s tasting note about this tea yesterday, I knew exactly what I was going to drink today! Sweet, chocolatey. So flavorful but not one bit harsh. The second steep is even better than the first. You can go steep after steep after steep, too. Expensive? Yes. Delicious? YES!

This is one of the few Adagio teas I like – their version of Black Dragon Pearls. That might help the wallet and tea budget! :)

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
