Jasmine tea is traditionally prepared using the highly fragrant, fresh blooming jasmine flowers or using the already dried and prepared flowers. The flowers are combined with the dried green tea leaves, oolong tea leaves, or black tea or white tea leaves.
Fragrant flowers like jasmine have a calming effect on us and so the most important use of drinking jasmine tea is to relieve stress and anxiety naturally.Most of the tea made using jasmine flowers, retain the fragrance of the flowers and so it refreshes your mind and body with a sweet natural fragrance.

Drinking jasmine tea is also believed to reduce sleep related problems as they soothe your mind and help you sleep well, and thus helping you to relax. Jasmine tea is also considered as a natural remedy for tensions and stress affecting our mind and body, thus reducing anxiety, depression and other negative feelings. The antioxidants in tea leaves help reduce the effects of ageing and helps the body to fight against the formation of free radicals. The combined effects of jasmine flowers and tea leaves is also said to improve the immunity and thus reduce cold and flu.
However, as I mentioned above, please discuss with your doctor before using any herbal remedies for your health problems. If you don't have any medical conditions or allergies, jasmine tea is not known to cause any concerns if taken in moderation. I love the fragrance of this scented, flavorful tea so I have it occasionally.
