This rare spring harvested tea in the shape of pearls steeps a full-bodied infusion. Each pearl is made of hand-picked leaves and golden buds that are manually processed into their gem-like form.

Our Black Dragon Pearl tea from Yunnan has an exquisitely smooth body and releases a sweet and malty flavor when it elegantly unfurls in your cuppa. Good for multiple infusions, perfect as a morning or afternoon tea.


Red Dragon Pearls (Also known as 'Black Dragon Pearl Tea') are originated from Fengqing, Yunnan. It's believed to be the birthplace of tea, and the oldest wild grown tea tree discovered is about 1,700 years old. Yunnan's most senior cultivated tree is a relative youngster - a mere 800 years old. These are the large leaf tea varieties - Camellia Sinensis Assamica - which is also cultivated in India. Yunnan also has the distinction of producing more black tea than any other part of China, although it's a relative newcomer to this variety. Black tea was first produced here in 1939, and is distinguished by its unique peppery, earthy and sometimes cacao-like flavor.
