Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea is a kind of jasmine green tea with new making craft. The dry green tea pearls will be piled with jasmine flower buds and fully absorb their fragrance. This will make the tea not only has the fresh taste of green tea but also the aroma of jasmine flowers, and is favored by many tea lovers.
Teavivre’s Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea is made from Yunnan high mountain Da Bai Cha, firstly rolled into pearl shape and then scented with jasmine flowers. There were three times tea scenting, and one time scenting with “No.1 flower” (the flower with richer fragrance), so we also call this process “三窨一提”. Generally, jasmine flower tea is abounding in Fuzhou, but in comparison, Yunnan high mountain Da Bai Cha has stronger tea taste and enduring infusions. Moreover, the ecological environment of high mountain tea is good, so it’s easier to pass the strict test of EU.
This tea is made of Yunnan high mountain tea leaves, rich in jasmine fragrance and can brew for many steeps.
Wen Shan Tea Garden locates in Jinggu County, Yunnan, with the altitude of 1800 meters. The annual average temperature here is 20℃, and the annual precipitation is 1588 mm. Red soil and yellow brown soil is the main soil here, which is very suitable for planting tea, walnut and other crops.
Except for the superior geographical environment, there are many two-hundred-year-old ancient tea trees around Wen Shan Tea Garden. These tea trees are not so large but have many branches. The main trunks are covered with many mosses, which also indicate the good ecological environment.
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.
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.

Its annual rainfall reaches 1,354 mm and the average annual sunshine hours are over 2065.3 hours. This place is typified by high mountains and deep valleys with different elevation ranges, that's why it was regarded as a very suitable place for growing different types of tea species. Except Dabai Cha, Jingju is also famous for other items, which includes: rosin, "Xiangya" mango, Yangta (秧塔) White Tea, and fragrant sticky rice as well.
Produced in Guangxi, China, the jasmine scented with Jinggu Dabai cha has won the primacy in the nationwide. The most outstanding producing-area is Hengxian, Guangxi, which is well known as “the city of Chinese jasmine”, since it has large planting area, and can produce high-yield and high-quality jasmine.

Jinggu Dabai cha belongs to arbor tea tree that comes from Mt. Kuzhu (苦竹: kǔ zhú) in Jinggu County. These particular tea plants are widely growing in local, naturally they can reach up to 4 – 5 meters with obvious trunks and sparse branches. Dabai cha is characterized by large and soft tea leaves, plump, fuzzy white buds with green color.
Spring tea, picked in one tea bud with two leaves, is in high level of soluble compounds. It contains 3.8% Amino Acids, 29.9% Polyphenols, 5.2% Caffeine, 15.3% Catechin and 46.7% water extraction as well. Therefore, it has a rich flavor in taste and leaves a sweet aftertaste in mouth and throat.
Scented green teas have a history that stretches back over a thousand years. The innovation of adding spices and flowers to green teas started during the Chinese Song Dynasty, around 960AD.
During the Ming Dynasty, in the 1500's, the modern production method of Jasmine scented tea, with the flowers being added to the tea during processing, prior to drying, was introduced and perfected. In this time though, jasmine tea was still rare, due to the increased complexities the processing required.
However later in the mid 1800's during the Qing Dynasty, production techniques were perfected and the number of tea farms rapidly increased, leading to greater production volumes and cheaper prices, culminating in it becoming hugely popular in China, a popularity that has remained to this day.

This is truly delicious. It is so flavorful that I used only a fraction of the amount of tea recommended. I actually liked it better that way. The jasmine taste and scent was lighter and remained in the mouth and throat after taking a sip. There was this subtle mouthwatering feeling and a light, delicious sweetness. There is astringency to the tea, but it feels very nicely balanced. The tea flavor (as opposed to the floral aspect of the tea) has a nice depth, but is subtle. So, it gives the tea a nice body that ends up feeling very well-rounded. It feels like a great daily tea, though the jasmine flavor is so delicious that I'd also serve this to guests. I'd definitely get more of this in the future. It's also an added benefit that there are certificates showing safety testing on the tea — I always love to see that. :) I brewed it at 80ºC using 1 tsp of pearls for about 4 oz of water. I varied my brewing times and gave it a thorough ~10 second rinse at the start to wash and awaken the leaves.
I am so happy with this tea it is excellent quality. I will be reordering. Exceptional customer service.
This is my favorite jasmine tea ever. So delicate. I place 3 pearls in to steep in 8 oz. water for five minutes and get a floral, dainty, sublime cup.
The first thing you notice as soon as you open the bag is the sweet and floral scent of jasmine. The tea is incredibly fragrant and its aftertaste has a strong, lingering sweetness. The tea handles multiple steepings very well and will begin to reveal a slight but pleasant bitterness with time. Overall, an excellent choice either as an everyday staple tea or when you need to relax after a long day.
