You're reviewing: Fengqing Dragon Pearl Black Tea
* Required Fields
For some reason it seems I haven't reviewed this tea yet, so I'll do that now. A solid black tea with hints of chocolate bitter-sweetness. This tea not only tastes great, it's very convenient! Each ball weighs approximately 2g so it's easy to know how much to use. It's easily worth the price, and I'll likely keep restocking this one. I haven't tried it western style yet, but it works well gongfu.
This is my favorite tea. It's perfect for a daily breakfast tea. It has a smooth, rich flavor with hints of chocolate and gives the perfect amount of caffeine. Teavivre is also the best merchant to purchase this tea. It's half the price of any other tea retailer. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
This is one of my favourite teas, smooth and sweet, with slight chocolate notes. It has a silky mouthfeel and smells so delicious. I like to watch the large pearls unfurl in my steeper.
One of my favorite teas, and the quality and price at TEAVIVRE cannot be beat!
Absolutely fantastic Hot and when i thought it could not get better i tried it cold brewed. this is tea re-steeps very well western style and has a wonderful chocolaty flavor to it. i will definitely be reordering this.
This is one of my favorite teas from Teavivre. I love the malty flavor and I guess what others have called cocoa/chocolate though I am not perhaps experienced enough to recognize it as such. I find later steeps have a flavor closer to puerh, which I also enjoy. I come back to this tea over and over again, and find it is also good as a gift because the dragon pearls are even more of a treat for non-tea folk.
This has got to be the single best black tea out there! Bold flavor that has a great chocolate zing to it. Very adaptable to adding flavorings like sugars honey or cream without being overpowering. highly recommend to pretty much ANYONE, even those who think they do not like tea!
This tea is pure greatness. I wasn't a fan of black teas before I tasted this. Most black teas (that I've tasted) have really strong/aggressive taste. Fengqing Dragon Pearl is a bit different. The aroma has strong malty chocolate in it. The pearls are quite even shape and weight 1-2g. My favourite strenght is 3pearls/65ml. Two pearls was a bit too mild. The taste is mellow with hints of cocoa, chocolate, honey, malt and smoke. Full-bodied tea with silky and warm mouthfeel. Awesome tea.
There was so much hype about this tea that I had to try it. I found this tea to be on the stronger, rich side, with less sweetness than I expected in the initial steeps. There is a definite malty, chocolate taste and smell, and very enjoyable overall. Also, I loved watching the leaves come apart, and the later steeps definitely mellowed out to have more sweetness.
This is a tasty tea. It has strong notes of malt and slightly weaker notes of chocolate or cocoa. I only brewed this western style so I may not have gotten the full effect but it was good. For the price it is good quality.
Reply: Dear Eric, Thank you very much for writing to us. I am very sorry that Fengqing Dragon Pearl Black Tea will not be available this year. For this year the taste of this tea is not very good, so maybe this tea will be available at next year. Furthermore, you can try this tea- the Nonpareil Yunnan Dian Hong Ancient Wild Tree Black Tea. The taste is richer and mellower than the taste of Fengqing Dragon Pearl Black Tea. If you have an interst in this tea, you can have a try.
Reply: Dear Eric, Thank you very much for writing to us. Sincerely sorry that this year we do not have this tea. For the quality of this year's Fengqing Dragon Pearl Black Tea is not very good. So this tea will come back at next year- 2015. Hope this is helpful for your concern.
Reply: Dear Phil， Please do not worry, when it is in stock, I will inform you through Email. Mary
