Jasmine tea is tea scented with aroma from jasmine blossoms to make a scented tea. Typically, jasmine tea has green tea as the tea base; however, white tea and black tea are also used. The resulting flavour of jasmine tea is subtly sweet and highly fragrant. It is the most famous scented tea in China. Our jasmine tea Dragon Pearls is an exquisite specialty. In an elaborate process, tea leaves are immediately mixed with jasmine blossoms after picking. The jasmine blossoms are sorted out again by hand. This process is repeated several times. Finally, all jasmine blossoms are removed and the soft jasminduft remains. The tea leaves are rolled into small white-fluffy balls.

 

The health benefits of jasmine tea include a reduced risk of heart attacks, a stronger immune system, and the prevention of diabetes. Jasmine tea also helps prevent cancer, while reducing stress, improving digestive processes, and lowering cholesterol. It has also been found to eliminate harmful bacteria and ease chronic inflammation like muscle aches and pains.

 

The tea can be made in a number of ways, of varying strengths and grades. Some are made as loose-leaf teas, while others are cut up and put into teabags. Some are rolled or bound in different shapes, like the very common “jasmine pearl”, usually composed of two tea buds and one tea leaf.
