Compared with our Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea, This Superfine Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea is more deliciously sweet green tea. It 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, superfine 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.
This Jasmine Dragon Pearl is a superfine 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.

You're reviewing: Superfine Jasmine Downy Dragon Pearls Green Tea
* Required Fields
I am not a big fan of jasmine scented teas, but there are a few which really have amazed me. This is one of them. First, it is not overpowering like some jasmine teas. The jasmine in this tea is very sweet, floral, and has depth in its flavor. It interacts very nicely with the taste of the high quality green tea. Second, the aftertaste is very lingering and cooling. You can feel the presence of jasmine in the back of the throat, and this is surely a sign of high quality. There is an aftertaste that lasts for a long time, and the cooling sweetness lasts even longer! Third, the tea leaves themselves are high quality. Whole, green, tender - these were processed very carefully. You can watch them unfurl and bloom in the water - they look like cinnamon rolls to me. I love it. I did not expect much from this tea but was surprised. This tea is expensive, but if you are a fan of jasmine scented green tea, this is as good as it gets. 9/10 stars overall.
Yesterday I tried the Premium jasmine pearls. Today, on an even hotter day (maybe the hottest of the year so far), I'm trying the Superfine. Honestly, I can't really tell much of a difference. The scent, appearance, steeped leaves are the same. The color of the brew is slightly a darker mellow yellow here than the Premium. Maybe I'm too much of a jasmine pearl amateur to know the difference. There MIGHT be a slightly more silky quality and slightly sweeter flavor over the Premium, but I might just be trying to find something that is different. But the flavor is gorgeous as usual, perfect for this hot day. A third steep also had quite a lot of flavor. I've adored all of the jasmine teas I've tried from Teavivre. The jasmine couldn't be any better on any of the jasmine blends. Choosing one to buy is quite a problem, as I wouldn't mind stocking up on all of them. That was why I wanted to try all of the jasmine teas though - I knew I definitely wanted to stock up on at least one of them! Any of these would satisfy any jasmine fan. Steep #1 // 1 heaping teaspoon for mug // 25 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // 22 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Harvest: 2014
A very subtle and nice tea. I like this a lot too, but compared to the Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls that I've bought before I actually think it is a little bit boring and, by my nose, has a more perfume-like jasmine scent. But I think this is only a matter of taste.
Very delightful tea. It has the real jasmine aroma and taste especially compared with the jasmine teas with essence. A real summer tea
This is one of the best teas I've had. It's delicious and complex with a lovely aftertaste. I brewed it at 85 degrees for 3 minutes.
This is truly fantastic. When I made my last order, I looked at reviews for the best the company has to offer, and wasn’t necessarily expecting a ton from this sample. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It is so much more subtle than most jasmine teas, though I do like jasmine, and the tea itself is lightly sweet and fresh and green without being bitter at ALL or intense. Truly a balanced flavor, even with multiple steeps. I am amazed.
A very nice tea! In comparison with TeaVivre's Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls, this one's fragrance is not so sweet but the fragrance is stronger. The taste is really mild and pleasing, mellow and very slightly fruity, 'melting-in-your-mouth' kind. No bitterness at all. I would recommend this tea to a friend and buy more. 93 or 94 points out of 100.
I could not be more satisfied or happy w/ the teas that I ordered. The free samples allowed me to also sample teas that I might otherwise never purchase. My only complaint was a strainer that I bought & could not figure out how to use. I read & listened to everything on your videos & the only conclusion I have came to is that it needs a certain cup that I do not have. The strainer either is too small or too large for the ones that I have.
Jasmine green tea is the first tea that I loved so much that I started brewing it at home regularly! This is the best of the best of any jasmine green tea I have ever had! It reminds me of smelling jasmine growing at my moms in the summer! And it's great with a little honey too! If you are a jasmine lover this tea will blow you away! Thanks Teavivre
This is it, the end of this tin. I am okay, though, because I had already ordered a large bag of Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls so I was able to refill the tin as soon as it was empty. The first jasmine tea I ever tried was from another company and it was a bad experience. It was Teavivre that turned me into a jasmine lover. We squeezed all possible goodness from these last pearls. Hubby and I had a Gongfu session and I managed to use a liter of water on this teaspoon of pearls. The last steep had just the ghost of green tea remaining, with a whisper of jasmine, but somehow it retained the creaminess. Teavivre’s jasmine teas are like a drug to me, so calming and so soothing. They make a happy place for you and then fluff the cushions when you get there. The tea base doesn’t disappear under the weight of a heavy perfume, but the flavors instead co-exist in perfect balance. Even the economical Silver Jasmine Green, when paired with food, is excellent, though for drinking sans food I prefer the others. Still I can stretch my tea dollars with the Silver Jasmine Green. The only jasmine tea I have not tried from Teavivre is the jasmine raw puerh, and I hope to remedy that oversight soon. I think I HAVE to have one of the Teavivre Jasmine Dragon Pearl teas and Silver Needle Jasmine White on shelf at all times.
