Jasmine Huang Shan Ya is a type of Jasmine Green Tea. It comes from the mountains of the same name, which are in Anhui Province, China.
The taste of this infusion is unmistakably floral and fresh with grassy undertones. The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company pack it fresh to order. This is our way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency.
It’s worth noting, too, that Jasmine Huang Shan Ya contains around 30-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup. The amount isn’t as much as Black Tea, say, but could be enough to get you out of bed in the morning.
Health conscious individuals will be pleased to know that it comes with Jasmine Tea Benefits. Most people, however, choose it because, put simply, it tastes great.
Creating Jasmine Huang Shan Ya Tea
- Dutiful workers harvest jasmine-buds while the sun is out and after the dew has evaporated.
- Only buds due to bloom that same evening are picked before arriving at the factory.
- The soon-to-be flowers are then stored until night when they blossom, releasing their scent.
- It is at this point that workers place jasmine into basket trays near Green Tea leaves.
- After some hours, the Tea underneath absorbs the fragrance and distinct floral flavour of jasmine.
The Botany of Jasmine Flowers
Jasmine comes from a genus of shrubs and vines known as Jasminum, which, in turn, belongs to the olive (Oleaceae) family.
Its use in commercial products is unmistakably widespread. Soaps, shampoos, lotions and perfumes are just some of the items that often contain jasmine.
Furthermore, and perhaps more importantly, there is our delightful Jasmine Huang Shan Ya Tea.

Benefits of Jasmine Huang Shan Ya Tea
Early evidence suggests that the antioxidants in Jasmine Tea, like all types of Green Tea, flavoured or unflavoured, can improve brain function.
In one study conducted at the University of Basel, Switzerland, researchers found that extracts of Green Tea increase the brain’s effective connectivity. This refers to the causal influence that one brain area exerts over another.
The effect of this connectivity also led to the improvement of cognitive improvement as proven by the volunteers who, after consuming the extract, tested significantly better for memory tasks.
However, until we know more, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does NOT endorse this Tea for this purpose. Instead, we support ongoing research.
