From Teavivre

Jasmine Dragon Pearl green tea is an entirely handcrafted and top-quality green, not only a wonderful drink but an elegant work of art as well.

Its production is a long and involved process: the buds and leaves are originally picked in spring, to be dried and then stored and kept cool until the jasmine flowers bloom. These night-blooming flowers are picked early each morning while the petals are still closed. When the flowers do open in early evening, they do so with a popping sound; when this happens the flowers are mixed in with the dried tea and left to sit for around five hours, after which the flowers are removed and the tea is set to carefully dry for a few days.

This Jasmine Dragon Pearls Long Zhu Green Tea is made by traditional processing technique, been five times scenting and one time scenting with flowers of richer fragrance, which not only guarantee that each dragon pearl fully absorbs the floral fragrance but also make its fragrance fresh and rich. Its taste is refreshing, sweet and soft, which will never become bitter even brewing with high temperature. Whether it is an unawake morning, or a sleepy afternoon, drinking a cup of this aromatic jasmine green tea will not only refresh but also soothe your mood.

Sipdown! (74)

Oh no, I’m almost out of jasmine samples from Teavivre! Hopefully the jasmine teas in my stash are still decent, because I’ve been enjoying sipping on these in the evening…

This is lovely as usual – sweet, creamy jasmine with some lovely light peach notes over a smooth and mineral, slightly vegetal base. The creaminess is really quite lovely – it tastes as though some milk has been added to my cup. Very slight pleasant astringency at the end that reminds me of a peach’s fuzzy skin.

Quite scrumptious. I’m not sure I would be able to distinguish it from their other jasmine pearls… Maybe sometime in the future I’ll have to order a sample of each and do a tasting. Although really, if there’s no noticeable difference I should just order the cheapest ones I suppose! :P

Looks like no one else has written up this one yet on Steepster! I bought samples of this quite a while ago now, so please consider this is not a fresh harvest I’m reviewing.  It does taste the same as it did a while ago when I tried it though.  The jasmine is lovely, as almost always with Teavivre’s jasmine teas.  It’s also very hard to taste anything of the tea itself.  These are larger green pearls that are slow to unravel.  I’m really only tasting jasmine, but that is why I drink these types of tea anyway: JASMINE.  Jasmine is divine in summer.  If I had to choose one Teavivre jasmine tea, it probably wouldn’t be this one, as I notice more of the tea fuzzies in the cup.  I’d rather have a smooth jasmine tea, without that aspect.  But possibly others wouldn’t notice that as much.

I ca not believe there is a jasmine tea by Teavivre that I have not heard of or tried!

They have so many though! (Which I love that they have so many.) I think it sneaked in there among the other jasmine teas a couple years ago.
