It's true: our teas are much more potent than people expect, especially experienced loose-leaf tea drinkers. This is probably why the best feedback we get is from tea experts and connoisseurs (and why we recently received Master's of Taste and Sofi awards).
I think there are two main reasons for the full flavor and extreme potency power in Dragon Pearl tea. First, this tea is mountain-grown in ideal conditions that promote optimum photosynthesis and glycolysis. The result is maximized flavor and concentrated antioxidant properties.
The second reason is that this whole-leaf tea is as fresh as possible, packed in double-airtight containers right at the farms.
In testing our teas, we found ours to be highest in theine (the caffeine-like substance in tea) as well as in anti-oxidant levels. Our green tea is the highest in "caffeine"--even higher than the black tea.
All this really comes down to one thing to remember when using our tea: use less. In most cases, about half as much of our tea will brew a cup as full-flavored as you're used to.
(If you want less caffeine, pre-steep for two minutes, and you'll get about 50% of the caffeine out.)
Throughout Asia, the dragon is revered as a symbol of power, magic and good fortune.
Dragon Pearl's true tea is grown organically in the pure air and soil of the Fujian Mountains, on the southeast coast of mainland China.
These farms yield the very best crops of their kind... the tea of emperors for a thousand years.
