    Elderflower with strawberry

Dragon Pearl Jasmine is one of those teas that is being sold in every self-respecting tea shop and is often a best seller due to its aroma and appearance. It is made from scenting Fujian Green tea and then hand rolling into balls in order to retain the fragrance of the Jasmine.

As usual, there are a wide variety of grades for Dragon Pearl Jasmine (also known as Phoenix pearl). Here are the things that you should be spotting when choosing your tea:

  1. The tea should have a very intense almost strawberry jam sweetness on the nose. This comes from naturally infusing with fresh Jasmine flowers many times over a two week period before removing all of the dry flowers. Our Dragon Pearl Jasmine has been scented at least five times for a full aroma.
  2. The balls should be relatively small and show some white buds. If the 'pearls' are big and do not show any white buds then the stock tea was not picked early enough and will not be rich enough in the bright aromas for a good Green tea.
