Many, many thanks to ashmanra for this tea!!!!!!
These are very, very delicious black dragon pearls, particularly if you prefer the more leathery/slightly smoky side of things. There’s chocolate and sweetness and grain, but a distinct Queen Catherine-esque type light smoke. It’s distinctive enough to even come through on the second steep.
It was yummy and a great wake up this morning, but boy is it delicious with my red beans and rice with andouille sausage and smoked paprika leftovers I brought for lunch!
I love my uberchocolatey thepuriTea dragon pearls, but these are different enough, believe it or not, that I would stock them both!
Thanks once again, ashmanra!
