Black Dragon Pearls


The tea leaves are hand-rolled into large striking pearls of black tea speckled with golden buds. Grown in Guangxi Province, which borders Yunnan Province in Southern China, expect a comforting earthiness reminiscent of Peregrine Mountain 1st Flush, but this is a milder tea with sweet fruit notes of raisins.

Fantastic service.

I first came across your firm on Kineton Farmers market. I was ill over Christmas. I couldn't get out and couldn't get whittards web site to work. I have placed two orders and joined the tea club. Who knew tea was so diverse. Ashmolean blend, Yorkshire blend, team tea, peregrine mountain first flush (,favourite so far) black dragon pearls and so on all are excellent. I will never buy from whittards again though you don't do Russian caravan.

Excellent flavour

Black Dragon pearls have become one of my favourites. Full bodied and aromatic, it’s perfect instead of coffee after dinner.

I love this tea

This is my "go to" tea for when I'm on night shifts as the pearls make it very easy to tote around and measure (seeing our teaspoons go missing all the time!), it's very forgiving of our lab's slightly dodgy kettle, and it makes a lovely rich earthy tea with fruity notes that remind me of fruit cake or raisins, so in the middle of a stressful shift when you want something comforting to give you a lift, it hits all the right spots. Flatmate likes to steal this tea to go with cheese when she's having a munch if you're looking for a flavour pairing.

A New Favourite

Exactly as it says on the tin, comforting raisin note brew, best after dinner and nicely accompanies cheeseboard, nuts/nibbles or fruitcake! Met team tea at Blenheim Palace and they were really patient and helpful with catering to my tea desires. Thank you :)
