Our Organic Black Pearls are a rare Spring-harvested black tea, grown and harvested in Fengqing Yunnan Province, China, in a wild, mountainous, and misty region. The tea trees are a Camellia sinensis assamica cultivar, grown at an altitude of 4000 meters. Then the tea is hand-picked and expertly rolled from 30 premium quality leaves and fresh succulent buds into a large pearl-like shape before the leaves dry. The resulting large pearls unfurl to dramatic proportions while steeping, revealing aromatic earthy tones of caramelized sugar with undertones of chocolate. After this exquisitely smooth tea experience, you will covet Black Dragon Pearls as the legendary gems they were inspired by.
Steeping Guide: 1 TSP per 8 oz water / 175°F / 2-3 Min
