Does Jasmine Flower Tea Have Caffeine?
Is Jasmine Flower Tea caffeinated? Put simply, no. The absence of other Tea leaves - both varieties of which come from the Camellia sinensis plant - means that it’s 100% caffeine-free.
This is great for those looking to cut down on their intake. Should you need the extra boost of Jasmine Flower Tea caffeine, we recommend our Jasmine Green Tea Bags - a Jasmine-scented Green Tea.
Botanical Features of Chinese Jasmine Flower Tea
Jasmine (Jasminum) is a genus of vines and shrubs belonging to the olive family (Oleaceae). There are an estimated 200 species of the plant native to both temperate and tropical regions.
We use the Jasminum sambac variety in the making of our Flower Tea Jasmine. Perhaps most famous is how it blooms at night, releasing an unforgettably fragrant scent into the air - a trait that transcends in your cup.
The Cultural Impact of This Loose Tea
Jasmine flowers generally grow in great abundance across much of Europe, the Middle-east, Asia and Australia. Jasminum sambac, in particular, is the national flower of Hawaii, Indonesia and the Philippines.
The Syrian city of Damascus, meanwhile, is nicknamed the “City of Jasmine” owing to the flower's prevalence. It also has a close association with Indian Ayurveda, a holistic approach to wellbeing.
