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!
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
This dry tea smells so beautiful. It has a pleasant jasmine scent. The downy jasmine balls are perfectly rolled, all uniform, beautiful colouring. As they are brewed they unfurl perfectly.
The smell of the brewed tea is very strong jasmine. I was a bit worried because the scent was so strong. The colour of the liquor is a dark golden colour with a tinge of pink.
The taste of the tea is wonderful. There is a jasmine taste but certainly not as strong as the smell.
This is a great tea for the appearance, the smell, and the taste.
Thanks Teavivre for the free sample, which was my first experience with jasmine tea. The tea has amazing jasmine aroma and taste, although a bit too much for me. At some point, I'll take the advice of another reviewer to blend in some unscented Dragon Pearls to fine-tune the scent /flavor to my palate.
i really like the jasmine. it works really well with the green tea
If you enjoy jasmine and green tea you will not be disappointed. I personally found the jasmine a little overpowering however. I added black dragon pearls to balance it out and it was lovely. The quality is through the roof (for both these teas). I got it as a free sample from Teavivre, and would highly recommend if you enjoy jasmine!
Excellent tea. The jasmine is perfectly sweet and refreshing without being overpowering. The pearls have a great downy quality and unfurl into the leaves -- I'd recommend a glass cup to watch them do it. The jasmine doesn't overpower the green, which I really appreciate.
The pearls look slightly fuzzy with a mix of greens and silver with a sweet and fresh jasmine scent. They are only small pearls but pack a lot of flavour and smell.
Once brewed the tea forms a pale golden colour with that has the same strong yet sweet and somewhat perfumey jasmine fragrance as raw but on a stronger level.
The flavour is smooth, naturally sweet and very fresh. The jasmine seems fairly strong at first but it mellows very quickly making each sip seem like it's the first one. Whilst being perfumey it's still refreshing and cleansing. The balance is perfect.
This is my favourite jasmine pearl tea and I don't think it can be beaten in quality and taste. It truly is the perfect cup of jasmine green tea.
If you like jasmine tea, it doesn't get much better than this. This tea is very smoothe and mellow without being overpowering. Jasmine tea often has a "chemical" taste from the artificial flavoring added to the leaves. That is not the case with this tea. The jasmine flavor is distinct yet subtle, and blends well with the tea.
Profile: Liquor is a pale, clear beige. Aroma is a natural and exceptionally sweet floral bouquet of jasmine. Taste is similar, with sweet jasmine diffusing across the palate and an undertone of soft green tea grounding it. Aftertaste lingers pleasantly, revealing notes of honey and grapes. Mouthfeel is smooth and light, with no bitterness or astringency.
Other notes: The freshly steeped leaves are intoxicating. Breathe in deeply and a potent whiff of jasmine will greet you. Aroma is very much a part of this experience as the taste. The pearls are also a pleasure to watch unfurl.
Verdict: A complex and truly superior jasmine tea, and perhaps the best I抳e tried. There is a sweetness here that overshadows lesser teas, the floral aspect is not cloying or artificial, and the leaves themselves are clearly a cut above the typical quality, leaving no trace of astringency. If you seek this style of tea, I would currently recommend no other as highly.
This is an outstanding tea. Truly incredible. I was looking for a tea with a very moderate amount of jasmine. I tried all of the jasmine teas available on this site and this is the mildest of them all.
It is elegant and complex -- soft jasmine and an almost grape-like sweetness. This one is similar to the premium jasmine green pearls in that they both have a wonderful inherent sweetness, but this one is just a bit more elegant and complex and has just a slightly milder jasmine flavor. I am buying both of these two teas, but this one is my favorite.
The white jasmine silver needle is also quite nice, but lacks the sweetness of the green. The regular silver jasmine tea is very nice, and is great for the price, but is not as elegant and complex as this one and has a stronger jasmine flavor.
Which one to buy just depends on your personal taste preferences -- all are extremely high quality teas.
This was a fantastic jasmine tea-very high quality. I prepared it just as recommended and found it to be deliciously fragrant, sweet, and smooth-no bitterness. We got 3 steeps. My husband gave it the thumbs up too. I recommend it to anyone who likes jasmine tea- I think it is just right.
