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.

A restock of 100g was ordered in May 2015. It is still jasmine-scented strong and well. (A fuller review was written previously.) I still highly recommend this tea, especially to jasmine-enthusiasts.
I am usually not a fan of jasmine flavored tea but this was absolutely amazing. The jasmine smell is strong yet not overpowering. I resteep this for 3 times and cold-brew the remaining tea leaves. Cold-brewed, it's even more amazing! Lovely way of chilling your body down.
This jasmine tea was super enjoyable. The jasmine wasn't overpowering at all. The tea leaves had a very subtle but noticeable sweet peach-like aroma that came through in the liquor itself, especially in the first steeping. The taste of the greet tea comes out more in subsequent steepings. Overall a great experience!
Fragrant is super! Smooth and tasty. Will get this the next batch when i order.
Gotta try. Cant miss this.
The jasmine flavor is very weak but otherwise the taste is nice. I still miss the jasmine, though.
I am a beginner in drinking loose tea leaves, I ordered a few different teas and I like this the most so far, the taste is great and I love the aroma from the jasmine
I am drinking this tea right now. When I first opened the package, the fragrance was good, with freshness as expected and sweetness a bit above average — however, not bad at all. I would give the fragrance of the pearls (when dry) about 90 or 91 points on a scale of 100. The fragrance gets even a bit sweeter after the first steeping (I am particularly fond of jasmine teas with slightly less sweet/rich fragrance after steeping). The taste is very good. On the second steeping, the jasmine recedes to the background (but the same fragrance as on the 1st steeping can still be felt) and the green tea stands out but there is no mentionable astringency. On an absolute scale, I think it is a good tea, as sweetness/richness is just a matter of taste. On a subjective scale, all in all, I would give this tea 85 points on a scale of 100.
I tried this tea in the flavoured teas sampler package. It was so good that I just have to give it a separated review (also posted on Steepster). LOVED IT! When I opened the package, the jasmine smell was fresh, definitely not overpowering or artificial. There’s instruction for water temp and how long it should be steeped on the package, so you can’t get it wrong. It was so fun looking at the pearls unwrap and spread their little “arms” in the tea. I honestly didn’t expect the tea leaves to be full and long, but they are. I’d like to see this as a sign of good quality tea. The first steep was amazingly not bitter at all, and the jasmine notes were the most prominent. I taste a little astringency in the 2nd steep and more so in the 3rd. Although I’d prefer a stronger jasmine essence from my tea, this tea is not bad at all. (Maybe I should try to use less water next time.) In addition, each little tea package (7g) is perfect for one mug of tea. That’s a plus for me because I don’t want my tea to be oxidized quickly. Get this tea if you like jasmine green teas. You will like it.
I received this as a sample and love it. The fragrance is wonderful and the flavor is smooth. I am able to taste what I think is the right amount of Jasmine. I am placing an order for this! Really enjoyes it.
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
