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
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!
First, I fell in love with green tea, then Jasmine green tea. I have been on a quest - to find the best. My closet is full of aging teas that I bought, but not finished. I have found it! My search is over. Superfine Jasmine Downy Dragon Pearls Green Tea is the BEST. Classic color. Aroma that is not to strong or to weak. A taste that is round and full bodied, simple, yet sophisticated. Highly recommended. But be careful, once you have tasted Superfine Jasmine Downy Dragon Pearls Green Tea you may not want to drink any other green tea.
I have now tried a few different varieties of jasmine-scent tea, and these Superfine Jasmine Downy Dragon pearls from Teavivre are among the best. To begin with, they are ravishingly beautiful! The white ribbons rippling through the perfectly shaped spheres are truly a joy to behold. The dried tea has a strong jasmine scent and the liquor brews up pale peachy green with a jasmine flavor and super-smooth, buttery texture. This tea was so tasty that I could not stop drinking it—and that means a lot on the most humid day of summer so far this year. I am looking forward to the second infusion later today!

A sad sip down. Hate to see this disappear. I do have a full bag of Jasmine green tea from Teavivre that I won’t open until a few more are gone. I can’t do 12 cups a day like some of you so this will probably take me through most of the day. I have said it before but I thought I hated jasmine until Teavivre. Wonderful almost grapey goodness.

Wonderful tea, smell so gooood. Will buy it again and again. Love the team Teavivre.
After steeping many pots of this jasmine tea I finally came to the conclusion that to get the pearls to unfold and yield the maximum amount of flavor on the first steeping that I had to steep it for 3 to 4 minutes. The result was a full flavor jasmine pot of lovely sweet fragrant tea. Steeping it for a second time for 4 minutes made another delicious pot of tea and completed the unfurling of the pearls. A really enjoyable tea.
This tea converted my green tea hating husband. Very smooth and slightly sweet. I brewed the pearls in a glass pot and greatly enjoyed watching them unfurl. They resteep well so a great value.
