These pearls are fascinating! I’ve tried Black Dragon Pearls before, but they were smaller, pea sized. These are more like cased walnuts! While smaller pearls usually unfurl into free leaves, these are tied with string, making them open into a beautiful flower. It truly is art form!
AROMA: Gorgeous! This is exactly my kind of tea! The aroma is full of sweet, light, malty notes that hint of summer fruits and dried wood.
FLAVOUR: Like chocolate! These pearls have an earthy cacao like essence. There’s lots of deep dark chocolate notes, a slight tobacco, a touch of fruit and a natural sweetness. The flavour combines with a satisfying, thick mouth feel and long finish that makes you feel like your sucking on a melting square of chocolate. These leaves are so good that I steeped them 4 times and they still tasted amazing!
