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.

      Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

      Used this product for ice tea as directed. And it is the worst tasting tea I have ever tasted. Once chilled in the fridge it turns a very strong brown in color. I think I will just stay with my normal cheap black tea in the bag. Lost some amount of money on this tea, bought 16 oz that will go in the trash.

      Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

      I lover this tea. Mostly because it tastes and smells like chocolate. But it is a great tea. Brew with 2 scoops though per 8 Oz otherwise you get no flavor. The only problem(ish) is that some pearls don't like to expand as much as others. Otherwise one of my favorite teas to drink hot!

        Regardless of the seeping time and number of balls you use , it's like infusing colred paper. No taste. I have tasted many better black dragon pearls

          Packs a punch

          By Tommy

          from Boston, MA

          Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

          I sometimes describe this tea as liquid crack. The amount of caffeine in it makes espresso look like baby formula. If you mostly drink green teas like me, Black Dragon Pearls may be a shock to the system. I think it must have something to do with the pearls, which gradually unfurl during steeping, creating a larger surface area for the water to extract flavor and caffeine from. 
          I don't always drink Black Dragon, but when I do, it sure lives up to its name...

          This tea isn't too flavorful nor not flavorful enough, it's just right. I mainly taste the black tea, not really any of the chocolate. In fact, I enjoy it more with a little rock sugar. I would recommend this to anyone who likes black tea.

          It's my weekend tea...

          By TS

          from San Francisco, CA

          Comments about Teavana Black Dragon Pearl Black Tea:

          I agree with others that it's a bit pricey, but I try to catch a sale price and save this tea for the weekend rather than brewing it daily. It's smooth, with a very clean flavor. I don't find that this tea needs as much sweetener as bolder black teas.

          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).

          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!!
