How is Jasmine Tea Made
Jasmine flowers come from a genus of shrubs and vines known as Jasminum. It belongs to the olive (Oleaceae) family, with its use in commercial products unmistakably widespread. Soaps, shampoos, lotions and perfumes are just some of the items that often contain Jasmine. Furthermore, and perhaps more importantly, there is Tea.
Although some choose to drink Jasmine as a Herbal infusion, most enjoy it in Flavoured Green or White Tea. This is the product of an intricate, time-consuming, yet worthwhile processing method.
At night, while the flowers are blooming, workers layer them over Tea for scenting. After several hours, the leaves absorb the fragrance and distinct flavour of Jasmine, creating a beverage unlike any other.
History of This Tea
Despite their popularity in China, jasmine flowers most likely originate from Persia (modern-day Iran). Historians believe that Chinese Jasmine Tea came into existence during the South-Song Dynasty (1127-1279 CE). However, it was slow to get off the ground.
It wasn’t until the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) that Jasmine Tea became popular. Famously, the Ming Dynasty was a time for the adoration of all things floral. Is it any real surprise, then, that this beverage became one such ‘thing’? And now, of course, you can buy it from us!

Benefits of Jasmine Tea with Flowers
Early evidence suggests that the antioxidants in this tea can improve brain function. This is according to a study conducted at the University of Basel, Switzerland, led by Prof. Stefan Borgwardt from the Psychiatric University Clinics.
Researchers instructed volunteers to consume Green Tea extracts, at which point each participant was given a series of memory tests.
The results established that Green Tea could increase the brain’s effective connectivity, referring to the causal influence that one brain area exerts over another. Ultimately, this could mean that beverages such as Jasmine Tea with Flowers could reduce the risk of developing Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
