Jasmine flower tea health.
After a big Thanksgiving, I really need a cup of tea. And jasmine Flower tea is the best to help you feel back to yourself. Want to learn how? then keep on reading to learn all about Jasmine Flower tea health.
If you’ve never tried this fragrant and energizing tea, it might be time to give it a try. This tea is known as “true tea,” unlike any other, and here’s why.
I’ve got all the details about its history, health benefits, uses in traditional herbalism – plus expert tips for making the perfect cup.
So keep reading Jasmine flower tea health to learn about this tea. Let’s head to the first question most people ask when thinking of trying this tea out.
What Is Jasmine Tea?
Jasmine tea is a scented tea that combines leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant with flower petals from either Common Jasmine or another name for this tea is called Arabian Jasmine.
How Does Jasmine Tea taste?
This tea (I have heard) has a sweet taste and then a fresh after-Taste. As you know, with their teas like Jasmine Tea, the flavor of this tea depends a lot on how the tea is grown and where it’s from, even if it’s Organic or not.
I try to get my teas from places I have bought from, and I try to get from sites known for the best tea leaves. That’s what all of us want from our cup…Right? We want a tea that will make us happy for what’s going into my gut.
But let’s put variations aside for a moment. Most jasmine tea shares a delicate, sweet, and floral taste with a bright, fresh finish and an aromatic smell – the same distinctive aroma found in jasmine flowers.
What Exactly is a Jasmine Flower?
Teamakers use two species for jasmine flower: Common Jasmine (Jasminum officinale) and Arabian Jasmine (Jasminum sambac), also called Sampaguita.
These species belong to the olive family, Oleaceae, and produce white flowers with a strong scent. This flower grows only in temperate or tropical regions such as South Asia as well as Europe.
So, we already know that the most common Jasmine flower blooms in the summertime, but let’s see what other kids of Jasmine flower grow in.
The Arabian species grows all year long. But they are very different from the more common Jasmine flower. And here’s how.
Jasmine flowers have a sweet yet warm scent to them which makes your tea smell unique as well! Jasminum sambac is a mellower and less sweet flower for this tea, but this also has a hint of citrus and honey notes.
Is Jasmine Tea a Green or Black tea?
That’s a question that I thought of when I first heard about this tea. And here’s what I know.
This tea has both black as well as green tea in it. And it has white tea in the blend as well. Now, this is where you might be asking. Wait! Does this tea have three kinds of tea leaves in it?! Let me explain this more, so you understand.
Jasmine tea has many kinds of leaves in a cup; it can have many different types of tea in this one. It has oolong, black, and green tea as well as white tea in it.
This tea, as you know, is from the same plant that makes the other teas. So here are the four health benefits of Jasmine flower tea health that you may not know about.
Side note: It’s a good idea to read up on what tea you are drinking, so you know what that tea helps with; if it’s just to help you wake up, you might want to try a different tea. Yes, black tea is good in a small amount, but if you have had black tea over a long period, that’s not good for you.
So, let’s find out why Jasmine tea is good to have.
Supports A Calm Focus at any time of the day.
As many already know, Camellia sinensis teas can be both stimulating and relaxing at once. And here’s why. Jasmine tea has caffeine (Because it has black tea in this blend)
But even though it has caffeine in a cup, this won’t give you the jitters like drinks such as Coffee and Black tea.
These properties occur, paired with the natural amino acid l-theanine.
Did you know that l-theanine promotes alpha brain waves associated with a state of “alert relaxation”
This means that Jasmine tea gives you the pick up you need in the morning but doesn’t drop you like coffee does most of the time. Which would be great for the busy days in your life.
In addition, Jasmine tea has a high level of Linalool, a chemical that makes plants have a sweet scent and sometimes makes the plant have a spicy smell.
That’s what makes the jasmine flower (Even the tea) has this sweet and green smell in it.
So remember to inhale deeply through your nose as you sip this tea, especially if you’re having a rough day, because this helps you feel at peace in a busy life.
Helps Supports Healthy Skin.
Healthy skin is beautiful skin, as you may have heard before. And that is very true, so why not think about using this tea for your next skincare time? Jasmine tea helps you promote skin health in a few different ways, and here’s how.
Although some research focuses on primarily topical effects of jasmine on skin health, implying concentrated jasmine tea to your skin can be the perfect addition to homemade skincare products if you know someone who makes those.
Whether you drink it or use it on your face scrub and rinses for your hair, or both, your skin and hair will appreciate the many benefits you get from Jasmine tea.
Supports More Healthy Cells
As you may know by now about this fact.
Green tea (the most common base for this tea) is high in antioxidants and polyphenols, and catechins like EGCG that support cellular health for you.
But along with the usual unique health-promoting compounds found in tea, jasmine tea has extra free radical scavengers thanks to jasmine petals.
This tea helps you’re Gut Health.
Drinking tea supports a healthy gut because some polyphenols act as prebiotics, nourishing your microbiome by feeding your gut bacteria. And in the case of fermented teas like pu’er, we can add probiotic (providing healthy bacteria) benefit to the list, too.
Also, did you know that drinking tea helps support your body’s natural anti-inflammatory response throughout your body, including in your gut?
While it’s too early to say for sure, some animal evidence suggests that jasmine may help support your body’s ability to maintain a healthy gut by promoting high levels of natural cellular antioxidants.
How to Enjoy Jasmine Tea.
Brewing a perfect cup of jasmine tea isn’t that hard. All you need to do is, first off, steer clear of low-grade teas. Go for something (or a brand) that you trust.
I know your think that the best is from your local store, but it’s not. And here’s why.
Even though buying like this is good in some ways (You help your local store), If you don’t look at what’s in the tea, you are buying nothing good.
I tend to buy online or at a store that I trust; one of the sites I know is good to buy is adagio teas, and they even have organic teas!
Brewing Jasmine Tea.
Brewing jasmine tea is super easy. When I first started my tea site, I had to research a lot of different kinds of tea and get to know what I was going to be writing about. So, to see the tea, you have to keep reading.
Jasmine green tea is the most common type of tea to have, and it brews between 170-180 degrees F. I, for one, don’t like my teas that hot; I love my tea at the temp of 160 to 170. And that’s fine for some who like their tea not as hot. But it’s up to you overall.
I’m not done just yet, I have other posts from this site, let me know what you think of it 😉
