From Tearunners

Black Dragon is a high-grade tea in the classic style of Fujian Province blacks. It’s is a “congou”, a name used in the tea trade meaning skill and patience.

This tea is multi-layered in taste, ranging from sweet cocoa, to hints of malt and fresh fruit. Its leaves are large and rich in flavor, so it will steep well multiple times.

A great tea for first thing in the morning or a refreshing boost in the day.

Sipped over the afternoon – thanks VariaTEA for sharing!

The dry leaf of this tea smelled really heavily of raisins to me, but the steeped tea was more plum heavy with other stewed fruit/stonefruit notes as well. It was pretty full bodied and quite smooth/clean finishing on the palate. I got notes of honey and cocoa as well, but much less than the fruitier flavours coming through.

It’s not my favourite black that I’ve tried from Tea Runners so far, but I would say that it is above the average mark…

the best part of this tea for me is the aftertaste which is a tad fruity and sweet, with some astringency, making it bright in the mouth. perhaps i haven’t figured out the proper steeping time but aside from a hint of powdered cocoa taste, the tea tasted very much like straight hot water, except for its aftertaste
