drank Dragon Pearls by DAVIDsTEA
137 tasting notes

I tried this today in a to-go cup. As stated in my previous tasting note about Butterfly Jasmine, I have been trying to increase my green tea consumption as well as to try more traditional teas as opposed to flavoured ones. It is really neat to watch these “pearls” unravel into the little “dragons”; they practically triple in size! In terms of taste/smell the jasmine is overwhelming! This tea is practically identical to Butterfly Jasmine! It is definitely an acquired taste that I don’t think everyone would enjoy but if you were curious like I was, there is no harm in giving it a try. I can’t see myself rushing out to stock up on it but I would not hesitate to drink it again.

Bio

I am a tea fanatic and have also recently made the transition from vegetarian to vegan! I always have tea in my hand and in my overflowing cupboard!

I prefer black, green and white teas. I have recently discovered mate and oolongs. So far I’ve enjoyed them however, I have not tried very many. I am not often a fan of rooibos as I tend to find them overly woody but have found there to be some exceptions. As for herbals, I am only recently beginning to drink these on a regular basis (mostly iced) as the weather gets warmer, but these I am willing to try. I have not yet developped the taste for pu’erh.

I tend to only rate and review the teas I drink once (maybe twice if my opinion REALLY changes; especially if I were to have them prepared a different way). I currently only use Steepster for logging my reviews of David’s Tea although I do drink teas from many different companies. Every time I visit the store, I try something new in a cup to-go as I enjoy going through the tea menu and marking off teas as I try them. My goal is to try them all!

My rating system is as follows:
90-100: Wecome to my permanent collection! (worthy of a 100g tin!)

75-90: Definetly would drink again but maybe not all the time. I would buy a small amount (50g or less) to have once in a while.

50-75: I will finish the cup but not my favourite.

25-50: I will try to finish the cup but may not be able to.

0-25: Not my cup of tea…down the sink we go!
