From Teavana

Fashionably rare spring-harvested black tea pearls are as coveted as the legendary gems they were inspired by. Just as their bejeweled counterparts take years to become perfection, each tea pearl consists of thirty leaves and buds hand picked and immediately rolled before the leaves can dry. The famed pearls carry sweet undertones of chocolaty romance, creating a smooth, sweet-bodied exquisiteness in each cup.

Full-bodied infusion with cocoa undertones

My my my its been a long while since I’ve been on here. Still an avid tea drinker, but not so much a social networker……Mmmmm, this is so smooth just as other have described. I put about 6 pearls in my 16oz perfecta maker, but to make things a bit different, I added 1tsp of honeybush vanilla. No german rock sugar like I’m used to but a teaspoon of white honey. This is almost too smooth. But is definitely appreciated on a stressful day as today.

Good. Not great. Might try again in the future, but not top of the list.

I really enjoy this tea first thing in the morning with a little bit of table sugar added to it.

This tea is one of my favorites for that mid-afternoon stretch. You know, when it’s 2pm and you’re struggling to stay awake from lunch and it’s not quite time to go home yet.

I love adding milk to this, as it reminds me of boba milk tea (though definitely not as sweet). At first I bought 2oz, and then Teavana had their crazy 75% off sale so I filled up a 1lb tin. This should last me a while, since you can resteep a few times.

I love this tea. Very chocolatey and sweet malty notes. Add some german rock sugar and its even better. I haven’t had the time to sit down and resteep it so lets see how that goes.

I love this tea. I realize it’s a little silly to roll black tea, as there really isn’t a benefit to it… but it makes the tea pretty. This tea has a beautiful malty flavor and pairs nicely with milk.

One of my favorite black teas offered by Teavana. Being a die-hard chocolate lover the coca undertones make this one of my go to teas.
