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.

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.
One of my new favorite teas! The jasmine scent is strong but it does not taste artificial at all. I can't wait to share this tea with my family!
Compared to "Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls", these Superfine Jasmine Dragon Pearl are far more strongly scented with jasmine. I strongly recommend trying this for all jasmine lovers, especially if super strength is desired. Just note that if you add too much tea/jasmine (e.g. twice the ratio than suggested), you might get a brisk tea. Fortunately because tea leaves used are fine tea buds, the tea will not go bitter. This is a highlighting difference between excessive superfine jasmine pearls and jasmine Bi Luo Chun tea. Although both will have brisk profile, superfine jasmine pearls did not turn bitter. If you used less tea ratio than suggested (e.g. 2/3 of tea ratio), the tea is still strong in volatile jasmine but delicate in base thanks to the tea buds. Using the normal recommended ratio, I was able to steep 4 times well. (A more detailed review on the tea's profile is to come after I do more testing.) I give this tea 5 stars for its super jasmine strength (I'm very pleased) and flexibility to brewing adjustments (it's fun.). (Whether it's worth the higher price than Premium is to be determined after more testing/comparison.)
I love Jasmine tea, and this is one is the best I've had yet.
I got this free sample of tea as part of the sample pack. Though not normally a fan of jasmine scented tea, this tea was really beautiful and the balance of jasmine was just right. It had a freshness and sweetness which was incredible. I could easily envision myself drinking this tea from time to time, a high quality tea which speaks for itself.
This is definitely a great tea. I really enjoy steeping this tea in a glass teapot because it is a sight to behold when the tea leaves unfurl! Although the liquor is very light, the body is surprisingly full! Since this type of tea is not Teavivre's highest quality Jasmine Pearl, I am curious to find out (and will order) the next grade up!
