What Is Jasmine Pearl Tea & Health Benefits?

Dragon-phoenix ball or pearl tea was a general designation for Song's North Garden tribute tea, which included the Dragon ball tea and the Phoenix Cake Tea. The North Garden was located in Phoenix Mountain of Jian'ou, Fujian Province. The Dragon-phoenix ball tea was already made during the Song Taiping Xingguo period (A.D. 976-983). During the Xianping period (A.D 998-1003), Ding Wei made "Big Dragon Ball" to pay tribute. During the Qingli period, Cai Xiang made "small Dragon Ball" which got the better of the "Big Dragon Ball". The Dragon-phoenix ball tea was the greatest achievement of ancient Chinese cake tea production.

This lovely tea is now grown in the Fujian and Jiangxi provinces, and Guandong and Guangxi provinces. Some say Dragon Phoenix Pearl gets its name from the tea bushes "climbing the hillsides like a Dragon rising from the waters". Others suggest it refers to the way the green and white leaves of the tea twist and swirl around one another. It is grown in a mountainous, often fog-shrouded area near the border of the Fujian and Jiangxi provinces. Dragon Phoenix Pearl is one of the finest jasmines shipped from the port of Foochow.

Jasmine pearl tea is tightly rolled white tea leaves (in tea talk, white = buds only) that have been suffused with Jasmine essence in the drying process. Lower-grade Jasmine teas are packed with the flowers included; the best jasmine teas are not, since the scenting process has completely infused a very strong flavor and essence of Jasmine over a very delicate tea. Guandong province tea is excellent and very similar to the Jasmine Pearls from Imperial Tea Court at almost half the price. The base flavor of the Imperial Tea Court Pearls is superior, but it is not an exceptional difference.

The tea is plucked in April and May and stored until August when the finest jasmine blossoms are in bloom. Night-blooming white jasmine flowers are picked in the morning when the tiny petals are tightly closed and kept cool until nightfall. In the early evening, the flowers begin to open with a popping sound which is the signal for the scenting to begin.

Once open, the "mating" of the jasmine and tea leaves takes place in up to seven applications, each taking up to four hours, after which the jasmine petals are removed. Once the petals are removed each leaf and bud set are skillfully hand-rolled into a tiny pearl size ball. The tea is then wrapped in silk mesh and dried to set the form. The "pearls" vary somewhat in size, with the higher grades containing larger and fewer broken pearls.

When steeped, these leaves unroll and produce a tea with a pronounced floral and fresh green tea scent, a full-bodied refreshing sweet taste, and a pleasing long-lasting floral aftertaste. The hue of this tea is a light peach color.

1. Weight Loss

The Tea Bridge

Chinese Tea Culture

Tea plays an important role in China. It is commonly consumed at social events, and many cultures have created intricate formal ceremonies for these events.

Tea may differ widely in preparation, such as in Tibet, where the beverage is commonly brewed with salt and butter. Tea may be drunk in small private gatherings (tea parties) or in public (tea houses designed for social interaction).
