Tea of the Week – Black Dragon Pearl
Name: Black Dragon Pearl
Region: Yunnan, China
Bought At: Teavana
Price: $15 for two ounces (25-30 cups)
First Impressions: Little tea balls!
This is hands down my new favorite black tea, I bought this a couple months ago at the Chicago Teavana on their recommendation, and I absolutely love it. Aside from the coolness factor of the tea being in almost perfectly shaped little spheres, it makes an awesome cup of tea. It smells wonderful, and is the smoothest black tea I have ever tried. It has the typical earthy flavors you expect from a black tea, nothing flavored. What really sets it apart is the amazingly light smoothness that it has. It’s kind of hard to describe, but you should definitely check this one out!
