    I have been drinking jasmine tea for years and I have to say, this is the highest quality tea I have been able to find. For the dragon phoenix connoisseur, head to Zhi tea!

    Very floral and fragrant. This is what I expected excellent fragrant tea to taste like.

    There are many teas out there that are more expensive. Dragon phoenix is the best I've tasted. The floral of the jasmine is there but not overwhelming. The finish is clean. No bitterness.

    I am loving, loving, loving these Jasmine Pearls from Zhi. By far the best I have tried. The jasmine scent is clean and pervasive without being cloying and the underlying green tea is really great. I used to buy them from R***, but now I save money and buy them from Zhi and they are even better! I even get three perfect steeps out of about 10-12 pearls.

    My favorite part of this tea was aroma of honeysuckle from the steeped leaves. Thanks to whomever rolled these for me. And thanks to Zhitea for bringing to me.

    I must have oversteeped it both times cuz it tasted bitter to me. Am I doing something wrong here? Everyone else seems to rave about it. Huh. I guess I'll try again.

    Perfect balance of jasmine scenting and the fine green tea. I can see why this is reserved for royalty.

Water: 195°F | Leaves: 1 tsp per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 2 - 3 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time
Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Green tea has been researched a great deal over the last 20 years. Results indicate that the catechins in green tea are responsible for a lowered risk of heart disease, lowered risk of cancer (especially prostate and breast), and potential reduction in onset of Alzeheimer's.
This tea originates from the Fujian Province in China. The shape of the Dragon Phoenix is quite unique – it is hand-rolled into a shape of a pearl. When steeped, the pearls unfold to release the sweet flavor of the jasmine aroma.

The tea is plucked in April and May and stored until August. The white jasmine flowers are picked in the morning after blooming at night. Thus, the petals are still tightly closed and are kept cool until night. Once the flowers are opened, the process of forming the tea “pearls” begin. The jasmine petals are removed and the jasmine buds and tea leaves are rolled into a tiny pearl sized ball. Then, the tea is wrapped in silk mesh and dried to set the form.

The Dragon Phoenix tea is grown in an area called Fuding between the Fujian and Jiangxi Provinces. The area is mountainous and often shrouded in clouds. It is said that this tea gets its name from the tea bushes climbing the hillside, much like a dragon coming out of the water. Women are specifically chosen to pluck the tea, and they give the appearance of dancing phoenixes next to the “dragon”.
