Full-bodied infusion with cocoa undertones
Rare spring-harvested black tea pearls are as coveted as the legendary gems they were inspired by. Just as their bejeweled counterparts take years to become perfection, each tea pearl consists of 30 leaves and buds handpicked and immediately rolled before the leaves can dry. The famed pearls carry sweet undertones of chocolate, creating exquisitely smooth body in each cup.

Quite Good

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

Fairly good black tea. I'm not sure yet if it's worth the price, going to be trying some of the other black teas Teavana has to offer, but it's worth trying at least once. It has a fairly light and almost sweet flavor compared to other black teas I've tried (various brands of Earl Grey and English Breakfast).

Weak

By Megan

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

This is not a bold, strong black tea. The flavor is ok, but it's not at all what I was sold or what I expected. Really disappointed by Teavana's lack of strong teas. Bring back My Morning Mate (best tea I've ever had) and JavaMate!!

Not as Fill Bodied as Expected

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

Surprisingly the robust, deep rich, chocolate notes were NOT present as I've experienced with other black teas. The first pour was as light and weak-bodied as a secondary or tertiary pour. The count of "30 leaves per pearl" falls way short than stated. I'll stick with my Yunnan Pureh and Assam teas.

My Favorite Tea

By HH

from SE Iowa

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

This is by far my favorite tea so far in black teas of Teavana. It is a bold full flavor which is what I enjoy. You can get a lot of brews out of one serving of tea balls which is a big plus in this tea.

Tasty Tea!

By CRMC

from PA

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

Got a 1 oz. sample of this tea. When I first started to brew it in my perfect tea maker it looked really weak. I love black teas but find some to be too bitter. I also don't really care to add sugars to my tea. When I poured it into my cup I was shocked at how tasty it was. I went through it rather quickly. I then added a little honey and the Belgian rock sugar to it and the taste was incredible. I will definitely be buying this again.

Overpriced underwhelming version of Black Pearl Tea

By DrewTea

from Minnesota

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

These pearls are smaller than other black pearl teas I've acquired from Yunnan. Suspect that it's not true black pearl, but instead a version from another area.

The claim is that each pearl has 30 leaves is simply not accurate. These pearls are about the size of dimes at best.

Nice, but ordinary

By GTea

from Chicago

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

I like coffee in the morning, and tea later on. I like black teas, and some chai and white. Golden monkey is clearly my favorite black tea. The Black Dragon Pearl is not as flavorful to me. While it is good quality, it reminds me too much of an ordinary (famous) teabag. You might try this if Golden Monkey is too strong for you.

Sorry, but this was a bit bland

By ElMatador

from Chino Hills, CA

Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

Inhad high hopes for this based on the sales person's description and recommendation. I tried brewing it three times to give it a fare chance. The result was the same each time: it's a pleasant, mild tea and the bland side of the taste range. Not worth the money. Sorry. My Teavana English Breakfast is cheaper and far superior. Perhaps the taste of the Dragon Pearls is too nuanced for my palate, which craves strong, bold black tea.
