From Teavivre

Nu Er Huan, translating literally to “daughter’s ring”, is a type of Gong Yi Cha, or tea art. The fresh material for this tea is selected from young, tender single buds from the Pu’er area, about 1500m above sea level, and after fixation is manually curled into the characteristic small rings. Following this, the jasmine flowers are selected and prepared for the scenting, and the tea maker uses his masterful skill to mix the budding jasmine into the green tea; through a series of traditional crafts, the tea absorbs the water, essence, and aroma of the jasmine flowers. The two are kept together until the flowers wither, at which point they are separated for the process to be repeated another five times, to ensure that the tea has fully absorbed the fragrance of the jasmine.

When brewing you can watch the lovely little rings begin to stretch in the pot, yielding a bright yet pale yellow liquid, and freeing some of the thin white fuzz from the surface of the leaves. It strongly carries the jasmine scent during and after brewing, and the sweetness of the flowers comes apparent with even the first sip. Because of the way the leaves unfurl, we recommend brewing this tea in a glass pot or cup.

Craft: Yi Ti (一提, known as Ti Hua)

As well as the six-step scenting, this type of Nu Er Huan undergoes one more process called Yi Ti or Ti Hua, “final scenting”, done with the goal of further enhancing the jasmine’s intensity. Only first-grade flowers are used for this, with their large petals, pure white color, and strong fragrance.

In order to retain this intensity, the tea leaves and jasmine flowers are mixed for one more scenting, and afterwards do not undergo any further drying; generally, the final scenting stage takes 6-8 hours, and every 100kg of tea leaves requires about 6-8kg of flower petals.

Got a sample of this one with my Teavivre order. Brewed gongfu. 80C or a bit less for some infusions. 2.5g. I really liked the look of the rings and watching them unfurl with each infusion.

First infusion was a little bitter. I brewed one minute and it was too long for this tea but the jasmine was good and strong. Next few infusions I kept it to seconds and the bitterness was gone. It’s very similar to Jasmine pearls with a good jasmine aroma and taste. However, I am having trouble picking out anything else about the green tea. Even though I love jasmine, it’s best when a little more subtle and the flavour of the tea comes out with it. Still enjoying this tea though.
