  • About the tea

    The Black Dragon Pearl is not just a pearl in appearance. This handcrafted black tea comes from a region that is famous for its high-quality teas.

    Yunnan is part of the Golden Triangle of tea origins. And gold can also be found in the fine, hand-turned balls of the Black Dragon Pearl. The many young tea buds, which shimmer golden after oxidation, unfold in a very special way, both visually and in terms of taste, with the large tea leaves in the infusion.

  • Characteristics

    Infusion: delicate copper-amber color

Preparation recommendation

For the best brew, steep the pearls in a large teapot or directly in the cup without disturbing them.

China Black Pearl Tea

Black Dragon Pearl Tea is one of the rarest black teas in the world and is a tightly rolled tea from the Yunnan province of China. A tea of ​​exquisite sweetness and earthiness, with a hint of cocoa, this tea is simply perfect.

The dragon is a Chinese national symbol that symbolizes both authority and luck. Several Chinese emperors wore this symbol. The ancient Chinese dragons symbolize chi - energy - and also represent new beginnings, success and prosperity and are extremely popular among Asian symbols.

It is known that the tea most likely originated in the Yunnan province of China. In the mist-shrouded mountains and winding rivers of the region, tea trees can be found that are more than 1,700 years old and still produce tea today. These thousand-year-old Camellia Sinensis trees are never pruned and produce probably the finest black tea in the entire country.

A wonderful tea to start the day! Let your energy flow as the beautiful bubbles unfold in your cup.
