Jade Sword™ Organic Green Tea

有机毛尖绿茶

Grown among misty mountains in a remote part of Zhejiang province, our Organic Jade Sword™ is spring-picked at an altitude of 800m, from a garden rich with biodiversity. It's here you’ll find Mr Song, affectionately known by the locals as Lao Song or ‘Old Man' Song, tending to his organic garden. His motivation for organic farming comes from a love of the area's traditional agriculture and a belief that food and plants are like medicine. Under Lao Song’s tutelage tea maker Han Houquan has created this year’s Jade Sword™ for JING with its lush green character evocative of this area in Zhejiang province.

    Fragrant & deep

    It’s my first time purchasing jade sword. I gotta say that I love the aroma when I opened the bag. And the beautifully shaped, curled leaves. The color is light green with a deep, a lil bit bitter taste. Gotta give it more tasting to form my final thoughts on it.

    Jade Sword Green tea review

    I tried it a bit light in the beginning, but it was a bit bitter at the end. I tried to mix it when I pour the tea, but it didn't help much.

    Hi!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback on the Jade Sword purchased.

    I am so sorry to hear that the Jade Sword wasn't as expected. It is advised to use a lower temperature water for Jade Sword at 80 degrees to ensure the flavour is still on the sweet, grassy side, as hotter water can over infuse the leaf causing a slightly bitter after taste.

    We would love to hear from you directly to assist you further, so please contact us directly on [email protected]

    Warm regards,

    JING Customer Service Team

    A clean and delicate green!

    I must confess that I'm not normally a green tea drinker, but this sounded delicious! It's a very delicate tea without much of the usual aftertaste which I really, really like. It also offers a clean taste and colour which also really appeals to me! Would recommend!

    A fine balance

    A clearly green infusion, grassy and lightly floral. Needs a good three-finger pinch well covering the base of the infuser with little show-through. Will stand 2-3 infusions. Very pleasant tea; a regular favourite alongside more flora Mao Feng.

    A clean cut from the Jade sword

    A very fresh, light/subtle green tea. It built in intensity and complexity with the second infusion - although that might just be my palette needing to wake up (I generally drink green tea at 5 in the morning!) Much less roasty than Long Jing.On my 2nd and 3rd infusions I got some cucumber and celery.Great stuff if you want a good,clean and light bodied green tea.

    2013s Jade Sword is simply stunning!

    This is by far the most delicious green tea of this style that I have tried. It has a bright, tropical sweetness quite unlike that of other normal green teas. Even after a couple infusions it holds up, revealing subtle layers of flavour and textural complexity. highly recommended!

    Not to be overlooked!

    Even though this is a budget price it has really nice complexity not usually seen in this bracket. It has the fresh green simple taste you'd imagine but also a subtle malty sweetness which elevates it wonderfully. I found its good for only two brews but the second is nearly as good as the first.I've been using a tea spoon per 150ml of water and 72c-75c water for 2 mins per brew.Amazing value and great a way to bulk out your order.

    A great tea

    This tea is good. The flavours are not exceptional as my 5 stars my imply, but for the price it certainly is exceptional. It is grassy and fresh, which makes it a pleasure to drink, with the benefit that you can drink as much as you like and it won't break the bank.If you want something less grassy and more complex go for a Sencha, but if you want really good green tea for everyday this is great.

    The Essence of Summer

    Drinking this made me think of summer hay meadows. The finest freshest hay with sunflowers and dandelions, and a hint of creaminess to round it off. As a green tea, it offers creamy grass and flowers, with no hint of bitterness at all, just the taste of sweet summer.

    A simple green tea to be enjoyed in any moment

    When you open the bag you can smell the deep fragrance of the dry leaves, which I associate to freshly crushed olive oil and there is no trace of the strange earthy smell often found in cheap green tea. The dark green leaves are long in shape and when you pour hot water over them a nutty aroma reminiscent of Dragon Well comes out... I like to imagine that this is how the air of misty tea gardens of China smell like. The crisp flavour cleans the mouth, giving the sensation of the tea leaves in all their freshness. This makes the Jade Sword the perfect tea to be sipped throughout the morning. It's a very easy to brew, you can even use a simple glass, but I wouldn't recommend multiple infusions as it will loose quickly its fresh taste.Jade Sword tea is also delicious when cold-infused. Its flavour is very balanced and it won't release much bitterness, just steep it in the fridge overnight and you'll get a wonderfully jade coloured drink.Definitely the perfect everyday tea with a great value for its price, superior to many other teas of the same price range such as the Gunpowder.
