|"A delicious black tea that is molded into a convenient form to carry or measure. Definitely worth the cost to pick some up for a treat."|
The pearls themselves are a sight to behold. They are larger then any pearl tea I have ran across before be it a green or black. These pearls are about the size of a marble and have wonderful colors of dark green, red and gold. The aroma is both malty and fruity.
I used ten of the pearls in my sample for a 1200ml teapot using 200 degree water and a steep time of 2 minutes. The resulting brew is a dark reddish brown with a sweet malty aroma. The first thing that I noticed when I took a sip was a cooling minty flavor that then blossoms into sweet caramel along with the flavors of peaches and plums. There is a sweet lingering aftertaste.
This is a wonderful tea that I am completely sold on. At $31.60 for a 100g it is a bit pricey but well worth splurging on and picking some up for a special treat. Especially when you consider that you can steep the leaves more than once.
