A lovely artisan tea where rich jade green tea leaves are formed around a wooden dowel to shape them into tiny rings. Each Golden Jade Ring unravels into a full slender leaf with a delicate yet delightful flavor. This tea is also known as Nu’ar Huan – little girl rings.
Fuding, Fujian Province, China
These hand rolled rings are made by rolling jade green leaves around a rod. As the tea steeps the rings gently unfurl to release the aroma of jasmine
Jasmine golden jade rings are made by rolling the rich jade green leaves around rods. Once the rings are formed, the tea is then separated into mesh trays and placed in a heated drier. In between each tray of tea rings, a mesh tray of freshly picked jasmine flowers is placed. The drier gently blows warm air through the tea and the blossoms, allowing the tea to gently absorb the scent of the flowers. In the morning the trays are removed, and the process repeated for up to 6 nights. The rings are then re-fired to remove any moisture absorbed from the blossoms.
- Start with your favorite spring or filtered water. Heat the water to between 160 F and 180 F,
- Use a teaspoon (3g) for a 6oz serving. Please note, for denser teas this is about 1 teaspoon; for larger-leaf teas this could be up to 2 tablespoons.
- Steep for 1-3 minutes. Experiment with steeping times, amount of tea and water temperature to personalize your tea experience. Rely on taste, not color. Lengthen subsequent steeping times for additional infusions.
