Background: Diets that contain lots of antioxidants will reduce the risk caused by degenerative diseases. Based on this, many people develop food or health products that contain antioxidants. Jempiring leaves (Gardenia jasminoides Ellis) and Secang wood (Caesalpinia sappan L.) contain bioactive and antioxidant compositions that are beneficial to health, so they are developed into herbal products.

Purpose: To analyze phytochemical reserves, antioxidant capacity and conduct organoleptic tests for Ring Cang tea, describing the benefits of ring rings based on laboratory test results and literature studies on jempiring leaves and secang wood.

Method: This research is a descriptive study by conducting phytochemical testing laboratory tests and DPPH antioxidant methods and conducting organoleptic tests with 15 panelists.

Results: Ring tea can contain flavonoids, tannins, terpenoids, alkaloids and polyphenols. Ring Cang tea has an antioxidant capacity of 291.43 mg / L and IC50 1.53 μg / mL which shows the antioxidant activity of ring cang tea in the very strong category. Ring tea can be tested organoleptically accepted by panelists in terms of color, taste, and aroma, so that it can be developed into herbal teas for the community.

Conclusion: Cang tea is an antioxidant tea that can be used in handling generative or degenerative diseases, such as diabetes, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and other diseases.
