drank Black Dragon Pearls by Adagio Teas
62 tasting notes

Since the day I’ve received this tea, it has never appeared as a quality dragon pearl. There’s no taste, no flavor…nothing. I’ve been storing it properly (away from light and heat in an opaque metal container), I’ve been brewing it properly (3 balls, 1 cup, 212* water temp, 5 mins). It has consistently turned out as nothing but overly black water. Thankfully I have another brand of dragon pearls so I know how this is supposed to taste and turn out, but I am definitely not buying this tea again. Everything a black dragon pearl is supposed to be is not in this cup or the batch of tea I received. Sadness.

Open to all teas, though I have yet to meet a white tea that can make me blink an eye.
