What Is Jasmine Tea (Girl Ring)?
The name of this tea comes from its shape, which resembles a girl’s earrings. It is also known for being green in color and having a long-lasting aroma that can’t be compared to other teas on the market today due to Gril Ring Jasmine Green Tea’s high-quality raw material – manual labor using only fresh leaves hand-rolled into round shapes creates excellent flavor with unique modeling features.
The production process of Gril Ring Jasmine Green Tea is very complicated and requires a lot of manual labor. Firstly, fresh leaves of un-bloomed tea trees are hand-picked in early spring when they are still tender and young. The leaves need to be handled with the utmost care so the quality isn’t damaged or bruised during processing, which can easily happen due to their thinness and softness. After that, these leaves go through thorough sifting and cleaning; only the best parts without any damage get through this procedure. Then it’s time for rolling into round shapes which is done by hand on marble tabletops (but nowadays some machines like stones do it too). This process takes more than 20 days because the tea makers have to make sure every leaf is evenly shaped and has the same level of oxidization.
Finally, the last step is drying the leaves for about 6-8 hours in a dryer with a low temperature. It’s crucial not to over-dry them as it would affect the flavor, so this step is done with a lot of precision and care.
As you can see, making Gril Ring Jasmine Green Tea is a very laborious process that requires a lot of time and effort. But it’s all worth it because the tea tastes absolutely amazing and has unique features that can’t be found in any other tea brand on the market today.
