The extraordinary White Dragon Pearl is a delicate hand rolled white tea. Each is individually handcrafted with care into a medium-sized “pearl” that gently unfurls as you steep it. Fine white tea from China’s coastal Fujian Province is known for its excellent standard of quality due to the high elevation tea gardens that are shrouded in cool mist with abundant clean air- these tea gardens produce some of the world’s finest white tea.

The tea is picked in a ratio of just two leaves to every bud, following a strict quality and tasting standards introduced during the Ming Dynasty. Processing of the tea is kept to a minimum, with the freshly plucked leaves and buds hand-rolled, dried and withered almost immediately after picking!

Once steeped, the result is a delicate, fine flowery white tea with a mild flavor, and a gentle fruit blossom finish. White Dragon Pearl has a taste that is much more delicate than a Bai Hao Yin Zhen, or Bai Mu Dan.

The size of one pearl is enough for at least 10 steeps. I recommend a water temp of 180 - 183 to provoke the opening of leaves. Rinse for a good half minute as the flavor will be very mild in your first 2 steeps. After about the 5 pour, the cha qi of your cup will fill your head space with true enjoyment. For a low-cost leaf, this is a good experience for longer lasting session, or you can save the pearl for a second session later in the day/evening. Very much comparable to their Old Tree Yue Guan Bai Cha. Very filling for the stomach. No need for food to accompany this leaf. I will keep stocking with this until they run out.

Brewed gongfu style, a mild and surprisingly sweet white tea with definite honey overtones which become milder and more fruit blossom-like after around the fourth infusion. A high quality white tea and a must try for anyone who likes honey flavours.

My first large pearl brewing experience. I do a lot of Gong Fu brewing but pearls (especially this large) take time to open. I highly recommend a rinse. And a step of at least a minute. Keep in mind being cooler at around 175-180 will bring it a more floral tone bring higher at 190-95 will make it taste more woody. It does have a nice clear liquid and is smooth. It's aged and smells like mao feng. (A green tea blend I love)

lovely, mild tea, each ball lasts for a long time.
Different to brew due to the large size of the Pearls.
I used 1 in a glass and brew grandpa style, rinse for 10 seconds first. Then I would use cooler water ~60C and brew for: 2+ minutes, and this lasted many steeps through the whole day. Also very tasty Cold-brewed
