This one came to me as a free sample from Teavivre ages ago, and I’ve only got around to trying it now. I don’t know what’s wrong with me – some extreme form of lethargy, apparently. I’m drinking tea, but I’m not writing about it; there are a lot of things I’m just not feeling at the moment, sadly.

I used half the sample pouch – 5 pearls – for my cup (I’ll be resteeping for sure!) I gave them 3.5 minutes in boiling water. No additions. To taste, it’s pretty much as I expected. I feel like I’ve tried something very similar from Teavivre before, but I’ve no previous notes on this specific tea, so it can’t be this one. Maybe it wasn’t organic, or something? Anyway, it’s malty, with all the thick-tasting sweetness that suggests. There’s also a chocolately, cocoa-like flavour, which, if I’m honest, was what I was hoping for when I picked this one out today. Delicious! This is a dragon pearl I’ll seriously consider keeping around.

Thanks so much for the new set of samples, Teavivre! I’m very excited to try the new teas! I’m thrilled that Teavivre is carrying a new type of black dragon ball. I’ve been looking for a black dragon ball to stock up on! To my tastes, the other one, the Fengqing was not my favorite, only for the reason that the flavor was too light. The flavor with these, is much darker and deeper and much more to my tastes. Six pieces results in a very dark and luxurious brew. Somehow, the main flavor profile of this tea, other than being an excellent black tea flavor, is a mysterious flavor of cinnamon! I love that these pearls have a much darker flavor. They could be steeped for many more than two steeps. These are the dragon pearls for me!
Steep #1 // 6 pieces for a full mug// 12 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 minute steep

Flavors: Cinnamon
