Jasmine dragon pearl is a scented tea, which contains the jasmine flower scenting process and ball-rolling process. It has the lovely, subtle jasmine aroma, but also tea taste as well.
This one bud with one leaf tea leaves, picked from big white tea bushes from Fuding in Fujiang province, has been scented with the newly-open jasmine flower buds for almost nine times before the finished products. So that is why this tea contains extremely subtle jasmine aroma, not the strong ones. After siping the tea soup, the mixed jasmine and tea aroma is around your whole mouth, and changes a little for your every breath.
All of our jasmine tea is store in the freezer to maintain its super freshness for our clients.

I bought this tea last year, and just recently received this year’s harvest too; and i have to say this tea never fails to impress me. It is mellow, sweet, smooth, and the flavor lasts through many infusions, 10+. You can tell it is definitely a white tea that has been used, not a pouchong, and it doesnt taste like any artificial perfumes or flavors have been used.

I brewed this in a 4 oz ceramic houhin and used about 10 balls filling the houhin only halfway with water. I started out with water that was 175 and did a 1 minute steep rinse…then a one minute first steep, upping the time in 30-45 second increments each subsequent steep, only upping the temp in 5 degree increments when the brew starts tasting lighter than the last.

It’s just a beautiful tea with a very noticeable, yet not overpowering jasmine scent and flavor…after about the 7th steep for me the jasmine flavor starts to dissipate and whats left is just the smooth, sweet brew of the leaves themselves. If brewed right the tea soup never develops a color…it stays clear and colorless.

I enjoyed this year’s harvest more so than last year’s. It’s sweeter and less astringent.
