Oh my; Its my very first post. Stumbled onto this place from nowhere in particular
Im actually just about to brew a cup of Black dragon pearl. Im a pretty deep drinker of blacks, and just recently picked this up along with a jasmine pearl + rooibos tropica (teavana) mix whilst browsing in the mall.
I love this tea. I brewed a pot of it (using 9 pearls) last night with a tsp sugar/cup (32oz pot). It came out wonderful. The earthy, nutty overtones of this tea, combined with the light, filling after taste is just incredible.
This time I used half a tsp of sugar. the synergy between the natural sweetness of this tea, and the sweetness of the sugar (Turbinado) makes a great combo.
