I had enough points to get something from Adagio, and remembering all the great reviews of this tea here I went with “Dragon Balls.”

But when it came to writing up a tasting note, I couldn’t find the tea to review! No matter how I searched, no correct results for “Dragon Balls!” About five minutes later I put it together: oh, right… it’s actually “Dragon Pearls,” we just have a good sense of humor about things. :)

So now I’m happily sipping this Dragon Whatever tea, which smells like chocolate and tastes as it should: like tea with a hint of chocolate. I think it’s a little weak, but I probably just didn’t use enough balls, or did use too much water. I’ll fix that next time.

It’s always fun to watch rolled tea unfurl, so there’s also that… though by the end it’s less pretty than some of the greens I’ve had. I’ll take pictures of it sometime to post here.

HAHAHAHA. I almost feel like Dragon Ball tea is going to demand its own theme song eventually.

I know, right? It’d probably sound like the Dragonball Z one… but with tea related lyrics. :)

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
