Jasmine Tea 101

What is Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea encompasses various types of tea that are scented with the delicate aroma of jasmine flowers. While jasmine tea may be made from different varieties, white and green teas are most commonly associated with this process. That said, it's also possible to scent other tea types, such as black or oolong tea, with the jasmine flowers. We're often asked questions like 'is jasmine tea a green tea'? Or 'Is jasmine tea the same as black tea'? Well that depends. In theory, any tea can be scented with these delicate flowers.

There are 2 methods used to fragrance tea with jasmine: the artificial and natural method. The latter, which involves using whole, fresh jasmine flowers, yields a more authentic and pleasing taste compared to adding artificial scents.

At Teasenz, we take great care in naturally scenting our jasmine teas. This process is meticulous but highly rewarding. Our tea leaves are harvested during early spring and carefully stored to preserve its freshness. As the summer arrives and the jasmine flowers bloom, the flowers are handpicked early in the day. Once night falls and the flowers fully open, they are layered with the tea leaves to impart their intense and delightful scent, which are absorbed by the leaves. This process is repeated every night for up to 7 consecutive nights. The result is a labor of love that truly pays off in the final product.

What are the benefits of Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea offers numerous benefits, including promoting calmness, enhancing mental clarity, and boosting the immune system. The fragrance of jasmine blossoms combined with the camellia sinensis tea base contributes to its advantages. Additionally, white tea, green tea, and black tea each possess their own unique set of benefits.

Calming and Relaxing: Scientific studies have shown that jasmine-scented tea has a soothing and sedative effect, aiding in relaxation.

Jasmine Tea & caffeine

The caffeine content of jasmine tea is often a matter of concern for tea enthusiasts. Determining the precise amount of caffeine in jasmine tea can be challenging due to various factors, including the type of tea, characteristics of the leaves, steeping utensils, leaf-to-water ratio, and steeping parameters. If you're concerned about caffeine intake, it's advisable to avoid drinking jasmine tea in the late afternoon and evening.
