Black Pearl

White jasmine blossoms, rich vanilla, and black tea leaves―the delicate blend that makes this tea truly unusual. The fragrant perfume of jasmine wafts from the cup, while a sip reveals the smoothness and sweetness vanilla brings to it. Sweeten with white sugar, but milk will intrude on the delicate flavors found herein.
