This black tea comes from Jingmai mountain in Yunnan. It is produced by Mister Wang and it is harvested at almost 1,500 metres above sea level, from tea plants over 100 years old. The leaves look like something out of Chinese legend: pearls clasped in dragons' claws.
These magnificent, exceptionally shaped pearls of black tea reveal rich and gourmet fruity and honeyed fragrances.
The Black Dragon Pearls are perfect with the Gong Fu Cha method : one pearl weighs around 8g, which is the ideal quantity in the teapot from the Gong Fu Cha Introduction Set. Each set contains 6 pearls, that is to say around 48g.
