Official descriptions[edit | edit source]

Egg[edit | edit source]

This egg has a faintly exotic scent.

Hatchling[edit | edit source]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It loves to chase butterflies.

Mature hatchling[edit | edit source]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It loves to chase butterflies.

And look, it has grown wings that release a faint, spicy scent when it waves them. It must be nearly mature.

Adult[edit | edit source]

Black Tea dragons have small scent glands on the underside of their wing arm that release a pleasant scent. Though many creatures enjoy being in the vicinity of Black Tea dragons, the scent is intended to draw in swarms of butterflies. Though Black Tea dragons are full sized dragons, these insects are the mainstay of their diet.
