Some people believe that jasmine tea is an herbal variety and therefore a caffeine-free tea. This is not the case at all. Every fragrant cup of the sweetly-scented tea is based on classic black, green, white or oolong leaves. Unless specifically labeled otherwise, all jasmine teas contain a significant amount of caffeine.

1 - Jasmine tea is a gentle eye-opener

A pot of aromatic jasmine tea provides a gracious start to any day and doesn't take much longer to make than a pot of freshly ground and brewed coffee. Those who find coffee a bit rough on the stomach first thing in the morning may wish to consider a switch to flavorful tea as their preferred breakfast beverage. If you're in a hurry to get out the door, steep your tea in a lidded travel mug and take it with you to add a touch of serenity to your morning commute.

2 - Green jasmine tea may facilitate weight loss

A 2012 study performed in Japan showed that incorporating several cups of green tea into one's daily diet can indeed contribute to weight loss. More than 1,000 people participated in the study. Although the amount lost was not large, it was steady and averaged between 0.2 kg and 3.5 kg per participant over a twelve-week period. Green tea weight loss supplements are popular, but a pot of jasmine tea is far more delicious.

3 - Tea with jasmine flowers is chock-full of antioxidants

Scientists confirm the fact that a cup of green tea delivers a generous dose of the antioxidants called catechins while a cup of jasmine black tea provides plenty of polyphenols and theaflavins. Antioxidants are known to work by detecting and destroying so-called free radicals that can wreak havoc with the immune system. Researchers around the world are currently performing studies that may prove a further benefit of black and green tea as a cancer, diabetes and Parkinson's disease preventative.

4 - Jasmine tea may be good for your heart

The catechins, theaflavins and flavonoids contained in a cup of fragrant tea may contribute to cardiovascular health by reducing or eliminating problematic inflammation within blood vessel walls, especially that associated with LDL, or “bad” cholesterol.

5 - Jasmine tea has antibacterial properties

It is impossible to overstate the health benefits of the antioxidants contained in green, black and oolong teas. The addition of jasmine oil only increases the efficacy of tea as a powerful antimicrobial and bacteria fighter. Studies show that there are properties found in jasmine oil that can and do kill E. coli and other harmful agents in the digestive tract. These same properties can also help lower the bacteria that causes dental cavities.

Traditionally, jasmine tea is made with a predominance of green buds and small leaves of the same Camellia sinensis that we enjoy as black, green and oolong tea. The tea is slightly fermented and kept in storage until the flowers used to flavor the tea are ready to be harvested. At that time, trays of night-picked jasmine flowers are alternated with trays of tea leaves so that the tea may absorb the scent of the jasmine as the petals open. The teas are scented multiple times with fresh flowers to produce the most aromatic and flavorful teas.
