From Foruntay Tea (ChineseTea-Shop.com)

Other Names: Moli jin huan, 茉莉金环

Origin: Fujian Province

Description: Golden Ring Jasmine Tea leaves are hand rolled into ring-shaped pieces. Small, round and circular in shape, they are generally made from a single bud and contain white hairs on them. After steeping the rings unravel to reveal the full green bud.

How to brew: Container selected: usually porcelain tea cups with lids are used for brewing flower tea. The tea and water consumption: 3g of tea leaves (about just cover the bottom of the cup) will consume 150ml water. Water temperature and brewing time: the best water temperature is 200-212 F, and the reccomended brewing time is about 3-5 minutes. In order to maintain the original flavor of tea, we suggest not using the tea leaves more than 3 or 4 times.

Harvest Date: Spring, 2010

Thanks LiberTEAs!

This is a mighty fine Jasmine! I like the RINGS and LOVE that it’s an Oolong! At least that is what it says here on Steepster…I certainly wouldn’t have guessed that by looking at it! The Jasmine flavor is nice but not intense…I like that! This is a nice, solid Jasmine Flavor and a neat offering from ChineseTeaShop!

:O Those leaves are super pretty! I’m impressed.

I attempted to visit the ChineseTea-Shop online, but it appears their website is down… maybe maintenance? I hope so…

Anyway, this is a nice jasmine. It has a bitter tone to it that hits just before mid-sip. Not a bad bitterness, though. This is definitely a sharper jasmine than some I’ve tried. The tea base is a very light tasting tea. Overall, it’s pleasant enough.

LiberTEAS

I noticed that as it cools the flavor becomes smoother – less bitterness, and the floral notes have almost a sweet, creamy taste.

Kashyap

does it show visible jasmine flowers?

LiberTEAS

@Kashyap – no. It’s all ringlets.

Kashyap

I got this free sample from ChineseTea-shop.com. They sent it all the way from Singapore! Can you believe that? Anyway, I’m not sure what I was thinking when I chose the Jasmine tea for my sample as I don’t really like Jasmine teas. So, read this review with that in mind. For a Jasmine tea, this is really pretty good. I’m not sure whether it is a green, oolong, or a white, or whether Jasmine tea can be a tea without a base?? I used 3 g of tea in my tiny infuser cup (I think its somewhere between 4 and 6 oz). I may have used too muh tea for the size cup. It’s a little bitter, but I kind of like the bitter against the strong jasmine flavor. The tea leaves are beautiful curled uo leaves when unsteeped. If you like jasmine tea, you’ll love this.

The tea base is probably green; although oolongs are also used, they don’t look like that. If you still have any (or if you encounter anything similar), I’d suggest trying 45 seconds to 1 minute at 80 degrees. That will likely bring out the jasmine and any sweetness in the green without drawing on any bitterness.

I think I do still have some of this left in my tea drawer. Do you mean 180 F?
