The most tender green tealeaves and silvery down-covered buds are hand rolled into small pearls and naturally scented with the essence of fresh jasmine blossoms. The fragrant blossoms are mixed with our reserve Dragon Pearl (Long Xu) several times until it becomes infused with the sweet flavor and heady aroma of real jasmine. More than 20 pounds of fresh jasmine flowers are used to scent each pound of dried Dragon Pearl green tea.

Tried this tea tonight. It’s very jasmine, to the point that I am second guessing whether the flavor is really natural. I’ve tasted natural jasmine tea made by blending green tea with jasmine flower. I didn’t find any flower in this tea but the jasmine taste was very strong. I can remember the flower blended green tea I had before was not nearly as strong. I am not an expert. But I still can’t believe this tea is organic and naturally scented.
This scented green tea is quite delicious and has an extremely fragrant jasmine aroma. Last time I made this with my boyfriend we actually stood there and inhaled a lot of the steam that was released…very relaxing!
I consider Rishi Tea’s jasmine pearls better than Teavana’s jasmine pearls, having tried them both a number of times. The tea can be steeped a number of times (6-7) and although the aroma of jasmine dissipates with each steep, the subtle flavor remains.
You’ll be surprised at the volume of tea leaves that’s left after the pearls unfurl. A few pearls go a long way!
One of my favorite daily teas – the first and third steep are my favorite. The first is astringent and floral, the second more of the same but slightly dull, and the third is where the green tea flavors really take a step forward and begin to fill the palate. Beyond the third is well and good, but I do prefer my tea full flavored and so rarely go beyond the fourth, though I easily could. I would be curious to taste a jasmine others rate better than this one.
