Beautiful hand-rolled pearls of scented green tea.

A speciality of Fujian Province in China, our artisan Jasmine Dragon Pearls have been crafted with extraordinary skill, rolling the youngest green tea leaves by hand and layering them up to six times with fresh jasmine blossoms, ready to absorb their fragrant oil as the buds begin to open at dusk.

The tea takes its name from the pearls traditionally seen under the feet of stone dragons standing guard at the entrances to imperial palaces and office buildings. The pearly leaves unfurl like blossoms in the infusion, creating a beautifully light and aromatic brew which releases layers of flavour with each steeping. You'll find it's the perfect tea for enjoying over the course of the day, and we tend to brew a fresh pot as an after-dinner palate-cleanser.

Brew the perfect cup

Add one teaspoon (around 2g) of loose leaf tea per cup and use freshly drawn water heated to around 80 degrees. For the ideal temperature either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for 3-5 minutes after boiling. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Best enjoyed without milk.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a bit of a traditionalist, so I tend to go for classic black tea blends like Earl Grey, or single origin varieties like Ceylon or Assam. Lapsang Souchong is a treat with hot cross buns.”

- Jamie, Oxford Street Store Manager


The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…


Jasmine Dragon Pearls

In Chinese folklore dragons are said to have 117 scales in the perfect proportion of Ying and Yang, so we thought we'd give this tea the number 117…

  • Cherry Blossom


    Green Tea with Flavouring

    Inspired by the Japanese sakura cherry blossom festival of early spring, we've layered a base of fresh Sencha green tea with flavours of sweet, ripe cherries and a sprinkling of pretty pink petals. One sip, and you're sitting under a candyfloss cloud of luxuriant blossom. Bright, sweet and sublimely springlike, we love it as a crystal-clear cold infusion.

  • Rosebuds


    Herbal Infusion

    Ah, the soft summer fragrance of freshly cut roses… Selecting whole pink rosebuds for the purest scent, this infusion is all about sweet simplicity. With its delicately mellow taste and beautiful clarity, you could call it an English country garden in a cup. Infuse lightly, using a glass teapot for a touch of tea theatre.

  • Jasmine


    Scented Green Tea

    Chinese tea masters first started experimenting with jasmine scented blends as early as the 5th century, a tea originally reserved for the refined tastes of the Imperial Court. Selected at dusk for the headiest scent, the summer's sweetest jasmine blossoms are scattered across a verdant base of green tea.
