Black Dragon Pearls

In stock: 34

Origin: China


Only the very best quality leaves with a high proportion of young buds are used to make this premium tea, which is expertly rolled into large pearl-shaped pellets in the traditional manner by experienced tea farmers in China. Just one glance is enough to show you that our Black Dragon Pearls are something really unique and special!

Organically grown and harvested in Yunnan Province, our Black Dragon Pearls are the black tea version of the much more common Dragon Pearl green tea. Black Dragon Pearls slowly unfurl in your cup to produce an infusion that has a naturally sweet flavor, similar to raisins, with notes of earth, it is smooth and chocolatey. Hints of cocoa whisper a subtle promise as the leaves unfurl, producing an aromatic and delicious brew to be savoured.

We recommend you to steep 2-3 Black Dragon Pearls per cup in hot water. Allow plenty of room for the tea to expand and unfurl in order to really release all the flavor of your Black Dragon Pearls!


Loose leaf black tea

I chose this tea after reading some of the reviews. I've been wanting to try it for a while. I was not disappointed. I found it delicious, not too strong and full of flavor. I am also glad I purchased through this company as the delivery time was outstanding. My order was processed immediately and arrived the next day via UPS. A lot better delivery time than most other companies I've used in the past. I highly recommend this special tea and I definitely recommend Tealyra.

My staff bought this for me more Christmas. It is remarkable. I have for many years enjoyed a similar tea from a different company, but I must say this is better tea. Even though there is no mention of this in the description, I detect a hint of smokiness in this tea. Perhaps it is because I brew it for 5 minutes. I wish this company long life so I can keep buying this tea!

Beautiful uplifting tea. Sweet and very fragrant. No bitterness would be beautiful with a dab of honey. But I don't add sweetener to my teas!
