Jasmine “Dragon Pearls” is a deliciously sweet green tea that combines the absolute highest quality green tea with a jasmine aroma and taste. Made from unopened bud and small leaf, this tea hand rolled into small balls, which slowly unfurl during brewing, releasing an amazing taste and aroma combination of green tea and sweet jasmine. Brewing a cup of this sweet, fragrant tea only requires a few tiny pearls!
Recommend Brewing Guide:
TeaVivre's Jasmine Dragon Pearl green tea is a completely handcrafted, premium quality green tea, that is not only an absolutely fantastic drink, but also an elegant work of art to watch brew. When dry, this pearl shaped tea is olive coloured with obvious silver tips. Its production is a long, involved process. The tea buds and leaves are carefully picked in Spring, dried and then stored and kept cool until the jasmine flowers bloom. The night blooming jasmine flowers are picked early each morning while the petals are still closed. Kept cool during the day, in the early evening the flowers begin opening with a popping sound, indicating they are ready to be mixed in with the dried tea. After about 5 hours the flowers are removed and the tea carefully dried for 4 to 5 days. This scenting process is then repeated with fresh flowers a total of 7 times, in the end producing this amazing tea that takes over a month to make! 1 lb of finished Dragon Pearl tea will use about 4 lbs of jasmine flowers during this arduous process. The end result is an absolutely amazing tea, and one of TeaVivre's top sellers.
Jasmine Dragon Pearl is a premium green tea, and so gives you all the great health benefits of any green tea. Due to its extremely high content of antioxidants, green tea helps reduce the instance of some forms of cancer, helps lower the risk of heart attacks and coronary diseases and helps fights the affects of aging and pollution.
In addition it is also widely believed in China that the jasmine flowers themselves add some additional benefits, helping reduce depression and also helping with natural detoxification of the body.
For more information on the health benefits of Green teas, take a look at our article on Tea Health benefit.
Just like all green teas, Jasmine Dragon Peal should be brewed directly in a glass at 176 ºF (80 ºC) for 1 to 2 minutes, giving you a tea with a minty green colour. TeaVivre's Dragon Pearl can be infused 4 or 5 times, adding about 50% to the brewing time and using slightly hotter water for each infusion.
Be careful to avoid using boiling water, as this will cause the tea to take on a slightly astringent bitter taste, that will overwhelm the sweet taste and aroma of the jasmine.

Lin Jian, who is born in Fuding, Fujian, has been living under the environment of teas. His father, grandfather and great-grandfather are all tea farmers. When he was in elementary school, he helped to pick the tea after school at the tea picking time when there’s not enough people to pick the tea. The dream of engaging in tea business was came up at that time. He said: “My original idea is to make a good life for my family by tea business. But from 1993 when my tea business was gradually developed, I changed my mind. Fuding is the best place of planning white tea. So I want to create a long-term Organic Tea business.” Through our contact with Mr Lin, we felt that he is a man of frankness, speaking quickly, walking quickly and working quickly.
Not exaggeratedly speaking, now Lin Jian is the first founder of Chinese white tea. He owns near 2800 acre high quality tea gardens in Fuding including 500 acre organic tea garden which is the only organic tea garden in Fujian that has passed the USA, Europe and Japan organic certification. He also owns 200 acre Jasmine tea garden in Guangxi. Meanwhile his heshan organic tea base was regards as the national agricultural standard base.
Like most of our premium teas, TeaVivre's Jasmine Dragon Pearl Green Tea is grown and produced in the Mt. Taimu area of Fujian province. The jasmine used in this tea is grown on a 200 acre plantation in Guangxi province.
This tropical mountainous coastal area is perfect for growing teas. The area has an abundant rainfall, with many misty days in spring, and temperatures that are neither too hot in summer nor too cold in winter. The mountains around the farms are more than 80% forested, ensuring the soil has a high natural fertility and organic content, removing the need to use fertilizers.

This is a buttery, smooth jasmine tea. It is light and refreshing. The pearls will stand resteeping several times and do not lose their potency quickly. I keep this one in the cupboard all the time, because it is my favourite Jasmine tea. This review was originally published on Steepster by Roughage on Jan 25, 2014.

The quality of this tea is exceptional. The taste and aroma are amazing!!!The tea is very smoothe and easy to drink. The tea was shipped in a very professional way, very well protected. Thank you Teavivre!!!
a Very nice jasmine tea. One of my top '10' green teas. Lots of jasmine flavor and the green tea flavor still comes through.
While not as fine as the Teavivre superfine pearl tea this is a very nice tea at a more affordable price. Brewed for 3 to 4 minutes yields a fragrant, sweet pot of jasmine tea. I only steep it twice, the second time for a little more than 4 minutes to get the pearls to completely unfold. Second pot is as flavorful at the first. Really enjoyable.
Based on the reviews, I bought this as a gift for Christmas. My order arrived really quickly and the packaging was great!
Dry leaf: white downy pearls. Just as one would expect. A great sample I received from Teavivre. I set up a proper tasting with degustation sets for each of the teas. Well, I didn’t do the traditional 6 minutes, but I did my best for the type of tea. Here’s my notes. Brewing method: 3g, tasting set, 75C for 3 minutes Aroma: Aroma is straight jasmine. Like holding a flower in your hand. Infusion: Nearly clear, light green liquor. Taste: Sweet and bright with a brisk mouthfeel. The jasmine aroma sticks to the roof of the mouth. Slightly drying. A classic Jasmine Pearls tea. Not overpowering, but perhaps more jasmine than I like these days, although I used to be addicted to the style and this is as good a representative of it as I can recall.

I really like this tea. I got a free sample and I am definitely considering ordering more! I'm somewhat new to loose leaf tea and the other green tea I tried was a little too grass tasting to my liking. This tea has a sweet aftertaste and I taste no bitterness. I highly recommend this tea!
Almost a sipdown, and I will finish this tea off by the end of the week. It is lovely but kind of old and fading a bit. However I think these are my last jasmine pearls! Sadness! I will definitely have to reorder these from Teavivre when I do get around to a big order from them. This fall! This review was originally published on Steepster by Dinosara on July 3, 2013.

This tea is very smooth and relaxing. The floral scent and flavor fills the senses. Sometimes I just like to smell it instead of drinking it!
I absolutely adore this tea! It's not overpowering like a lot of Jasmine teas. It also has a hint of honeysuckle? I don't know, whatever it is I can never go back to any old jasmine tea! This tea also helps me focus and keeps my head clear, I'm so glad I found it.
Reply: The difference is mainly on the quality of the tea leaves. Superfine Jasmine Dragon Pearl has tender buds and leaves than the premium jasmine dragon pearls, that’s why it could be made into smaller pearls, and has heavier jasmine flavor due to the tender leaves’ stronger ability of absorbing flavor.
Reply: Yes, they are same. Thank you
