My first thought when I opened this…“Holy cow these pearls are ginormous!”

So pretty though! Mixture of black & gold.

I love watching pearl tea steep! It’s almost like blooming flowers ha ha.
Anyways, this was another tea from my BF order. And I have not been disappointed me yet! Leaving me in awe with every tea I try.

At first when the package said to steep it up to 10 mins I thought there is no wayyyyyyy!
But yup! On my third steep I took it there! Yup! 10 mins!

That’s crazy! How is that possible?!

Anyways this tea was scrumptious! Malty! Sweet! Chocolatey!
I will have to savor my last little pack of this! let’s just say when my stash is all cleared out I will definitely be reordering from them! I’m really loving all these malty chocolatey teas lately perfect for upcoming valentines day! I want a valentine tea :( a steepster valentine!

i love dragon pearls! their chocolately, honey-like flavor amazes me.. the only ones i’ve had have been from Teavana, so i’m always on the lookout for other brands.. the ones from Teavivre sound amazing! also want to try Mandala’s too.

ps- of all ‘chocolate’ teas i’d say black dragon pearls do it best, and they’re au naturel! do u have any recommendations for other chocolate flavored teas or straight teas with nice cocoa notes?

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Mandalas flowering tea cones, verdants laoshan black, verdants laoshan genimacha black, harney and sons soho, harney and sons Florence. There are so many! I can’t even think right now ha ha.

gah, thank you so much!! i’m also interested in Verdant’s laoshan black/genmaicha, and H&S Soho…will check out the others! :)

Love these pearls – agree with BrewTEAlly Sweet’s suggestions. Florace and Soho are really good – Verdant Laoshan Black is really chocolate for a straight tea, and the chocolate genmaicha is just amazing. Haven’t had the Mandala cones, but well everything from Mandala is good….
The one I would like to add is Herbal Infusions Cacao. It’s not tea, it’s a herbal blend – but IMHO it is just silky smooth milk hot chocolate. :))

thank you so much, Dexter! you have been most helpful :D
i know…Mandala seems to be all the rage around here…am dying to try their Milk Oolong, Special Dark & GABA Black..
also, the Herbal Infusions Cacao sounds delish!

Dexter

It’s all just personal preference, I hope you find something that works for you. :))

Bio

Hi! I am a 20 year-old from Salinas, California. I attended school in Monterey and played softball for my JC. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where I got a job as a full time baker and I LOVE my job! I have always loved to bake and cook since I was young and actually started my own cupcake business in highschool to help pay for my senior year as well as pay my way through college. Once I moved my cupcake business was put on hold, but I still love what I’m doing now. I love to work with children and hope to transfer soon to a college for child development or family psychology. I would also love to go to culinary school! I have a lot of things I want to do and am determined to do them! I am a huge tea enthusiast. I love to read about tea. Learn about tea. Make tea. Drink tea. Taste new flavors.

I am also very big on reading and always enjoy a good read. If you ever have any reccomendation never be afraid send it my way!

I am really excited to be a part of this tea community and can’t wait to trade tips, teas, recipes and treats!

PM me with any of the above and I can’t wait to meet you all!
