black dragon pearls

black dragon pearls

Black Dragon Pearls is a rare, hand-rolled variety of black tea with a smooth, rich and chocolatey taste. Hailing from the Yunnan province, this black tea version of the popular Dragon Pearl is comprised of only the highest quality leaves and buds, expertly rolled into a large pearl-like shape. Black Dragon Pearls are naturally sweet and smooth, with a touch of earthiness. Subtle cocoa notes whisper gently as each pearl unfurls, delivering a superior tea experience not to be missed. We suggest using 2-3 pearls per cup for the fullest flavor.
Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

fresh from origin

Yunnan is the name of the Southern Chinese province bordering Vietnam. It's believed to be the birthplace of tea, and the oldest wild growing tea tree (never pruned to be bush height) is about 1,700 years old. Yunnan's most senior cultivated tree is a relative youngster - a mere 800 years old. These are the large leafed tea varieties - Camellia sinensis assamica - which is also found in India. Yunnan also has the distinction of producing more black tea than any other part of China, although it's a relative newcomer to this variety. Black tea was first produced here in 1939, and is distinguished by its unique peppery, earthy and sometimes cocoay flavor.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine
