Tea of the morning here. Thanks to Carol Who for this sample that I’ve been meaning to try.

I steeped this entire sample for 3 minutes in a 20 oz. teapot. What I had was around the equivalent of 6 or 7 pearls. Eh, this stuff is okay. It certainly got some dismal reviews from others but I don’t mind it that much. It seems to be a bit on the side of brisk and winey for me, which is strange for a tea you’d think is Chinese. To me this tastes a bit more like an Indian tea. I thought it was better with some soymilk added. Now I feel like I’m getting a bit of chocolate notes. I’ve definitely has better dragon pearls but this wasn’t terrible in my opinion.

I’m NOT looking forward to my morning. I have to visit the dentist and I’m getting 4 fillings worked on. They told me to eat a good breakfast because my entire mouth will be numb for hours afterwards. I guess I will be having a smoothie for lunch… lol

I’m glad you got to try the Tazo Black Dragon Pearls. My opinion was about the same. Nothing special.

Sorry about the dentist. That’s never fun. But think how strong and healthy your teeth will be! OK, its hard to come up with something positive to say about going to the dentist!

at least my teeth probably won’t fall out if I take care of them… lmao

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
