Dragon Ball Tea

Of all the tea out there, if I really, REALLY have to choose one, it’d have to be the dragon ball tea. I still love me some Lipton with lemon (well, that’s all they serve on the plane anyway) and genmaicha in Japanese restaurant, but when it comes to comfort tea (like comfort food), nothing beats a cup of hot dragon ball tea. It’s usually sold by the bulk in Chinese grocery stores or tea shops and it may seem a little expensive, but a little goes a long way, so don’t be afraid to splurge a little. The dormant nestled shape is like a baby in a womb and then each tea ball expands into a long thin stripe of tea once it hits hot water. It’s like those “condensed towels” that you’ve to soak in order to use them. So this tea is like a butterfly that morphs into a different species in a way. Tricky little plant.
Oh, and here are the benefits of green tea.

Do you have a favorite tea as well?


  1. Fancy! My mom once bought jasmine tea that came as dried blossoms and unfolded in the hot water. So beautiful! Reminds me of what you wrote above. 🙂

    My favorite tea is Earl Grey.
