Fresh From Origin
In Western culture, dragons are the big bads of stories, be it Sleeping Beauty’s shape-shifting Maleficent or The Hobbit’s dwarf-eating Smaug. In China and other Asian countries, dragons are often benevolent creatures, known for their intellect, supernatural powers, and affinity over water. Once used to depict the emperor’s power, they have long been symbols of power and good luck. Sometimes depicted as holding flaming pearls to symbolize their spiritual energy, wisdom, power, and more! They have been key figures in Chinese mythology and culture for thousands of years. It should come as no surprise then that our black dragon pearls come from Yunnan, the birthplace of a beverage nearly as old as the dragon’s themselves.
