I love the subtle cocoa aroma of this tea. Black Dragon Pearl brews up strong but can be re-steeped (re-stept?) if needed. A pinch of sugar or Splenda, in my case, finishes this full-bodied flavor.

This fragrant and rare hand-rolled tippy black tea from the Yunnan province unfurls to release a smooth-bodied taste with sweet, chocolaty, and malty undertones. Good for multiple infusions. This is a perfect morning and afternoon tea.

This Tea is a great Black Tea, It offers a earl grey feel, but is completely different and strong in its own way. furthermore this tea brews well and if you let it sit for a good 4-5 min then it will be dark enough to have a full body and with one sweetener and then iced it is perfect.
Flavors: Cedar, Earth, Scotch
A decent tea. The pearls are pleasant to look at. There are a lot of golden buds peeking out of there, and I like that. The flavor, for a Chinese black tea, was rather thin and bland, but with at least a prominent flavor nonetheless. The aroma is delicious. At this price, though? I’ve had much better Chinese black teas at a much cheaper price.
While I don’t care for their marketing, the tea itself is quite good. I could tell they were not used to customers who want black tea with no flavorings with it.
Good leaves, lots of nice flavor. An excellent tea for work as the pearls make it easy to dish out into my steeping mug.
picked up this tea at a Teavana store while at a conference in Pheonix! I was so excited to go to a teavana store (all of my stuff had been online sans store in my area). These were great to travel with toss a couple in a baggie in your purse or bag. No mess, no spillage. Great flavor and a good morning pick me up! Would buy again. I didn’t think they got too bitter and I have one of those mugs from Teas etc. that you add the loose leave and drink from the strainer at the top. Causes some over steeping but I don’t mind a somewhat strong brew!
