Jasmine Flower Tea
Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Jasmine Flower Tea is beautiful, mesmerising and, of course, tasty. It consists of delicate floral notes with every sip. Indeed, this is a Herbal Tea of outstanding character that continues to increase in popularity. The reason for this is partly owing to the health benefits of Jasmine Tea.
Most people associate Jasmine Tea with flavoured Green or White Tea. But if you wish to avoid caffeine intake, or want to enjoy a standalone floral infusion, then look no further. This is the brew for you. As well as having an enchanting flavour, it can support the immune system and improve skin health. It can also aid digestion and even promote weight loss.

Jasmine (Jasminum) is a genus of vines and shrubs belonging to the olive family (Oleaceae). There are an estimated 200 species of this plant native to both temperate and tropical regions. We use the Jasminum sambac variety in the making of this Tea.
Many Jasmine shrubs can grow to heights of 10-15 feet (approx 3-4 metres). These particular varieties experience annual growth of approximately 12-24 inches. Yet its most arresting quality is how it blooms at night, often beginning between 6 pm and 8 pm. At this time, it releases an unforgettably fragrant scent into the air, only for the flowers to close by morning.
Depending on the variety, 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 across the metropolis.
Jasmine flowers have a close association with Ayurveda, a holistic approach to wellbeing that is commonplace across India. According to Ayurvedic medicine, these flowers can have a tranquilising and sedative effect on the body. Some people also use it externally to treat skin blemishes. Most famous, however, is its use in balancing one's "doshas".
Doshas are energies that make up every individual. They work together to perform physiological functions in the body, according to Ayurveda. The three doshas are the "Vata" dosha, the "Pitta" dosha and the "Kapha" dosha.
Vata: This is the energy that controls bodily functions associated with motion. It includes blood circulation, blinking, breathing and the heartbeat.
Pitta: This energy regulates the body's metabolic systems. It includes digestion, absorption, nutrition and the body's temperature.
Kapha: Finally, the Kapha dosha is the energy that controls growth in the body. It also supplies water to all the body parts, moisturises the skin and maintains the immune system.
This Tea can balance both the Kapha and Pitta doshas. However, if you prefer to keep your head in modern science, then do not despair. Jasmine Flower Tea can improve daily life in a plethora of ways. Best of all, this has the support of countless scientific studies.

Health Benefits of Jasmine Flower Tea
Research suggests that Jasmine Flower Tea can provide relief to menopausal women. It can ease symptoms such as dizziness, hot flashes, insomnia and headaches. Other studies indicate that it can also lower "bad" LDL cholesterol, which in turn improves overall cardiovascular health.
Preliminary evidence even goes as far as to theorise that it could boost the metabolism of fat cells. This, in turn, could potentially enable the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently. Ultimately, this could lead to weight loss!
