Black Dragon Pearl blend

Probably the most exotic tea I've blended and had, I took 4 Black Dragon Pearls, and brewed them with Oolong ooooh darjeeling for 3 minutes. More Dragon Pearl than the darjeeling, but it tasted noteworthy in a good way. A fruitiness wrapped in the smokey flavor. The sweetness from the darjeeling highlighting the bold Dragon Pearls combining goodness to greatness.

I would never have thought of this blend.

Now that some time has past, have you revisited it?

I've had it again, it's really great !! The only drawback is that I'm cautious of it staining my teeth, or something like that so I brush my teeth right after. Other than that I'll probably make it every so often.
