Recommend Brewing Guide:
Scented tea does not only include Mo Li Yin Zhen and Mo Li Yin Hao, which are the two typical jasmine flavored teas we are selling on TeaVivre. Mo Li Yin Zhen is made of jasmine and Silver Needle White Tea, while Mo Li Yin Hao is made of jasmine and green tea. Scenting a tea is a task that tests the worker’s skill. The amount of jasmine, the fire temperature, and the green tea’s quality are all significant factors for scenting. Due to the process of scenting, you therefore can smell the jasmine fragrance without catching a glimpse of jasmine flower in the tea.
Jasmine Bi Luo Chun can help to refresh your mind, and cool down the inner heat in a hot summer. Yet since green tea is astringent, it is not suggested to drink green tea frequently if your stomach is not strong.
What is the scenting?Scenting makes use of the good adsorption properties and aroma –release ability of tea leaves and prompts tea leaves to absorb the fragrant smell of jasmine and layer the taste. In this way, the beverage not only has jasmine flavor but also has white tea flavor and the taste has been prompted.
Introduction to the process of scenting
Piecing tea flowers together- piling - -baking- cooling - - binning
Piling is the most important step in scenting. The control of temperature is very significant. If it is too cold, the tea leaves cannot completely absorb the fragrant smell of jasmine; if it is too hot, the tea leaves will be burned.
The tea tree specie of this Jasmine Bi Luo Chun Green Tea is Fu Ding Da Hao, “Bai hao” for short. It is asexual propagation, belonging to semi-tree form. In 1985 it was certificated as national variety in the number GS13002-1985. This specie sprouts in early March, and can grown for 8 months in one year. Spring tea leaf contains 4.37% of amino acid and 16.2% of tea polyphonels.
Mr. Lin Xingbiao has been a professional tea farmer for thirty years. Born in a traditional tea family, he was deeply influenced by his family and built his own tea factory in 1966. With the gradual growth of his factory, he is trying to seek the common development between enterprise and tea farmers. He thinks that the most challengeable factor is the weather. If tea leaves suffered from bad weather, the yield would be reduced and the quality would not reach the standard. If tea leaves suffered from cold weather, straws would be used to cover them and protect them from being frosted. This is what Mr. Lin gets from his experience over the years.
Scenery for origin product place
Therefore, the first priority is to strictly control product quality and ensure its reputation. Mr. Lin, together with his tea factory, will continue to provide high-quality tea leaves and regularly increase the number of tea factory which provides the healthy and natural tea beverage for the public.

Excellent. A wonderful fragrant tea. Very smooth with a lovely jasmine flavor. Naturally sweet with a sweet aftertaste.
Very nice tea, the jasmine taste is not too strong. Good and tasty.
This tea was my first purchase from TeaVivre, and it was excellent. I ordered the 2014 tea on special. I just ordered an additional 600 g because it is so good as a daily drinking tea. The resealable bags are also very nice! I also really like how TeaVivre lets you choose from numerous high quality samples at checkout. Very pleased and will be reordering!
I am not normally a fan of jasmine teas but this tea is fantastic. The jasmine is not overpowering or too strong. This is a very good and tasty green tea.
This is a remarkable twist for jasmine tea. I was familiar with Bi Luo Chun before trying this, and that was good, but being a jasmine fan, this REALLY blew me away! It is truly as another person said, that it does have a bit of a buttery/brothy undertone in tasting notes that blend wonderfully well with the jasmine smell and taste. I love how these little snail shaped leaves open! This dramatic show hints at the dramatically smooth, yet vibrant taste will satisfy you, but leave you wanting just a little more with each sip! I have even experimented with brewing this along with other jasmine flavored teas, and the results are ALWAYS AMAZING! Just be careful with temperature and brewing time, because, as with most green teas and also white, too hot and too long will be sure to ruin a good tea, and that is positively criminal!!! Take the extra few moments to make sure of these two things, and you will have a perfect cup every time! We all need to take these moments for ourselves to relax, unwind, and unplug from our daily routines. And for those concerned about caffeine-I have to watch out for it, myself, and have never had a problem with green teas of ANY kind, because it contains a LOT less than even decaf coffee, so little that you would have to drink many cups of tea to even come close to one of decaffeinated coffee or soft drink! So drink up and enjoy all its benefits!
So I tried this one with one teaspoon after the last time steeping two teaspoons seemed a bit too much and astringent. This time around it still had a slight bite to it that kind of cuts into the jasmine. So this one isn't my favorite jasmine tea from Teavivre. How about a comparison? Overall, the jasmine teas are AMAZING and I could stock up on any of them. It's a little difficult to tell any of them apart, as the jasmine is so fantastically strong that I couldn't really taste the base teas. In order of how much I liked them (and which harvest I tried): Jasmine Silver Needle White (Mo Li Yin Zhen) Harvest: 2015 My rating: 98 Superfine Jasmine Downy Dragon Pearls Harvest: 2014 My rating: 96 Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls Harvest: 2014 My rating: 95 Silver Jasmine Green (Mo Li Yin Hao) Harvest: 2014 My rating: 84 Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearls Harvest: 2013 or 2014 My rating: 83 Jasmine Bi Luo Chun Harvest: 2014 My rating: 80 So even the jasmine tea I liked least was pretty delicious. These teas are must tries if you like fresh, sweet jasmine!
Thanks again for the samples, Teavivre! I think I was supposed to receive the Bi Luo Chun but here is the Jasmine instead. I really wanted to try this one anyway! The dry leaves are very fragrant with jasmine. So lovely, especially in very hot temperatures. I could drink jasmine teas every day. The green and white colored dry leaves are loosely bundled, any tighter and they would look like oolong. I'm glad using more than two teaspoons didn't ruin the flavor on the first seep - there was just a half teaspoon remaining in the sample so I went with 2 1/2 teaspoons. The flavor isn't too strong at all. It seems perfect with the first steep being one minute. The jasmine is strong and reminds me of bubblegum. It's hard to believe these leaves only need to sit around jasmine for 8-10 hours and it has such a lasting impact. The green tea makes itself present underneath all of that jasmine a little more than the white jasmine tea I sipped yesterday, but that is to be expected. The brew is a dark yellow but not at all astringent or bitter - it's a little like a buttery soupy broth. With the second steep, there is still a ton of jasmine. If I brewed if for more than a minute and a half I think it would have been much more bitter. The third steep IS a little too strong for this tea - the flavor is now marine like. So I think a lower amount of teaspoons would help: maybe even just one teaspoon. I'll try it again another time with less tea. All of the jasmine teas I've tried from Teavivre so far have been winners! I could stock up on all of Teavivre's teas. Steep #1 // 2 1/2 tsp. for 11 ounce mug // 30 minutes after boiling // 1 minute steep Steep #2 // 30 min after boiling // 1 1/2 min Steep#3 // 30 min after boiling // 1 1/2 min Harvest: April 26, 2014
This one is difficult to review because this is a new combination for me. Bilochun and jasmine sound good together. BUT I guess since I'm used to the Jasmine Pearls, this one is more bitter and not as sweet as I'd want it to be. Other than that, It's an enjoyable tea, just not my favourite. I'll probably do more tasting of this tea and give another review later.
I got a sample of this tea out of curiosity because I think I have not tried any Jasmine Biluochun before. After tasting it I can say that this is not a tea for me. Although I generally like Biluochun because of its mild sweetish taste, combined with jasmine it did not stand a comparison with a number of other jasmine teas I have at home, including other jasmine teas from TeaVivre. This tea is mild-tasting, the jasmine is there but I think I sensed some 'overstrained grassy freshness' or 'unsmoothness' in the combination. That said, I consider myself a demanding tea-lover concentrating on the small niche of jasmine teas and in a jasmine tea I usually look for certain features that I am accustomed to. This tea could well be a favourite of someone with preferences different from mine.
Very nice tea, good value for money. A bit bitter perhaps, but you can avoid that by using less tea.
Reply: Dear Luigi, Very sorry that we do not have the actual amount of caffeine in mg. As for the low caffeine tea, you can try our herbal and fruit Tea or some green teas.
