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.

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.

Some floral teas are too floral flavored to the point of being cloying. This one is NOT one of them. It's the perfect mix of green and flower. It's a bit of calm on hectic mornings. It tastes like spring where everything is just starting to be green. I have not tried it iced yet but I think it would be refreshing in summer as well.
Smells wonderful when you open the package, delicious jasmine and something sweet. The tea liquid is a beautiful pale golden yellow. Tastes fresh and slightly sweet, reminds me of honeysuckle. Seriously one of the best jasmine-flavored teas, it is not overpowering or too flowery. Best jasmine pearls I've ever tried. Really high quality. It's just very delicious and smooth in your mouth.
I really like this jasmine green tea from Teavivre. I have tried similar floral teas from other places but have found some to be perfume-like and fake. I like the taste and smell of this one and think it is delicious. I plan to try the superfine one next and see how it compares.
Teavivre keeps forcing me to re-evaluate my prejudices about my least favorite teas. I’m not a flowery tea fan and, of all the flowery teas, the one that I disliked the most was any with the word “jasmine” remotely connected. However, I am shocked to discover that I like this particular jasmine tea…a lot! This full-flavored green tea does have a strong jasmine taste. But, there is a wonderful inherent sweetness to the flavor that simultaneously permeates my throat and nostrils with each sip. After brewing this tea for only two minutes at 175 degrees, I was surprised by the robust flavor that was produced. The total experience is without bitterness of any sort. It’s just a long delightful sweet ride. This review was originally published on Steepster by Stoo on Jan 29, 2012. TeaVivre has added this whole review here by getting permission from Stoo.
This tea has a jasmine aroma. It taste floral and buttery. The strong jasmine aroma does not come through in the flavor, it is much more muted. I get the jasmine taste with honeysuckle and a sweetness that reminds me a little of honeydew melon.
Once I opened the sample package of this I was greeted with a fantastic smell. Then I saw the beautiful pearls. It’s hard not to like this tea just from the get go. I have tried several jasmine teas and many of them I have found to be too strong or even have an artificial tasting jasmine aroma. Teavivre’s jasmine pearls is nothing like that, it has such a nice and clean taste, it is superbly balanced with a truly wonderful jasmine aroma. This is a perfect tea.
extremely fragrant jasmine with high quality tea. it cant be overbrewed, it gets only stronger. when brewer for a minute at 80 degrees Celsium, the tea is like the tasty super fragrant jasmine extract. the taste and fragrance last 5-6 brews without quality loss which makes this tea the best money value. this is certainly the tea that gives you the highest number of high quality tea as you can brew it again and again. i havent seen it even with very expensive teas. the best money vaue.
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.
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
