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!
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.

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.

I chose this as a free sample with my order. I'm not a big fan of floral teas, and jasmine especially has never appealed to me. I got the sample on a whim and I'm very glad I did. The tea is very fragrant, but not overly so like perfume. The jasmine tea is delicate and mellow with a slightly sweet aftertaste, it also has a slightly creamy texture. The jasmine flavour is not too weak or too strong, probably medium. This is probably a good jasmine tea for starters :) The green tea flavour is not very prominent, but it comes through a little when the jasmine weakens. I brewed it according to the gongfu instructions on the website, I got about 8 brews before it got too weak for me. I will definitely get a full size of this in the future!
Teavivre's description is spot on. Lovely green tea with light jasmine flavor. I prefer this seasons fragrant Jasmine Bi Luo Chun Green Tea because it has a stronger Jasmine taste. However this Dragon Pearl tea is very nice also.
Thank you! Teavivre: Hi, cristina, thanks for your support! Hope you will enjoy the teas!
Simply excellent. following the brewing instructions it comes out with delicate taste still strong Jasmine flavour and character. REccomend it!
This is a tea I use for relaxing. The smell is soft but lingers, and invigorates. I use it for a bedtime cup or a mid-day wake up call and both work well.
With jasmine - it is the best tea. The smell is not passed! This tea is a must buy and try it yourself.
Аромат этого чай с жасмином просто великолепен! Пью этот чай перед сном и кружка остается на тумбочке - так приятно пахнет! Поднимается настроение. Просто ароматерапия самая настоящая. The aroma of jasmine tea is simply amazing! Drink this tea before bedtime and the mug is on the table - so nice smell! Uplifting. Just a real aromatherapy.
If you like a light floral tea this is for you!
I am jasmine tea lover, but I don't like so strong jasmine fragrance in my tea. This particular jasmine tea is my favorite. Delicate aroma, awesome taste; my senses are completely satisfied. Delicious!
This is a light tea, appreciated mainly for its aromatic qualities. My favorite for afternoon tea break. The smell alone can improve my disposition.
Reply: Dear Leslie, Thank you very much for writing to us. The 2014 premium jasmine pearl tea will be available around November.
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
