• Mild taste with floral notes reminiscent of gardenias
Jasmine Tea is a specialty among China Teas. It is prepared from green tea of chosen quality and scented with fresh jasmine flowers. It blends the fine flavor of green tea with the fragrance of Jasmine producing a unique drink which has won the favor of many tea lovers.

Jasmine Tea is known to have been produced as early as the Sung Dynasty over 700 years ago. Just as the Jasmine flowers begin to bloom, they are added to the tea leaves. The scenting is done at night to capture the full sweet scent of the Jasmine. After the tea leaves have absorbed the fragrance, the flowers are removed and the scenting process is repeated to produce a tea that has a fresh and natural bouquet.

Originating in the mountainous regions of northeast India, Jasmine is known by most for its intoxicatingly rich sweet smell. But Jasmine also has wonderful properties for skin care. It tones the skin, has anti-inflammatory properties and is especially well suited for dry and sensitive skin.

Because it was thought to have aphrodisiac powers for many centuries, Jasmine was an extremely valuable oil during ancient times and it was used in different cultures in many types of ceremonies. The Chinese used jasmine in sick rooms to cleanse the air. It was also used by Egyptians to help support nervous disorders, insomnia and headaches. The Chinese still drink jasmine tea on a daily basis, and in Indonesia it can be used as a garnish to food.

An ornamental garden-worthy climber, jasmine grows wild from the Caucasus to China. It is grown worldwide for its exquisite scent as is the royal or Spanish Jasminum grandiflrum. The Arabian Jasminum sambac is the variety used for flavoring jasmine tea.

History

The name Jasminum comes from the Latin rendition of the Persian yasmin. It was known to the Assyrian kings and was recorded as growing in the Islamic desert gardens of the eleventh century. It came to Europe in the sixteenth century when it was taken up by the perfumery trade.

Characteristics

A vigorous, deciduous, twining semi-evergreen climber with green stems and elliptic leaves with three to nine leaflets. Fragrant white flowers in branched cymes throughout summer, followed by black fruits. Height up to 33 feet.

Growing Tips

Grow in any fertile, well-drained soil. It is happy in sun but grows well on a north-facing wall. Thin as necessary after flowering. Propagate with greenwood cuttings in late summer.

How to Use

Pure essential oil of jasmine is one of the most evocative of perfumes and one that truly lifts the spirits. Jasmine is a cornerstone of many perfumes in which it supplies the "middle note." Nowadays it is used almost exclusively in the perfume industry.

Health-wise,jasmine has been tried for the potential to help support symptoms of sunstroke, fever, irritant dermatitis and infective illness.

Emotional upsets and headaches respond well to a dose of jasmine. It is regarded as an aphrodisiac when applied to the body in its oil form.

Dosage: For therapeutic benefits, take a cup of jasmine tea 2 to 3 times a day.

The difference between the hundreds of teas available and herbals such as this, is that all teas are made from Camellia Sinensis. Herbals, fruit infusions and tisanes are not. They are made from various parts of other plants which have their own characteristics and flavors. For whatever reason, these Jasmine flowers are virtually flavor neutral and add a lovely dimension of flowers and white coloration to a tea blend without affecting the taste profiles of the tea.

Ironically, these same Jasmine flowers would have been used in China to make Jasmine tea, delicately scenting the fresh green tea with their ethereal character. The best Jasmine flowers become available in early May in Fujian province. During this time the aroma in the fields of Jasmine can be intoxicating and probably one of the most memorable scents to which you could be exposed. It is when these flowers become available that they can be used to scent green tea, resulting in Jasmine Tea.

The flowers are used up to 9 times (depending upon their flavor and the time of year they are plucked). The process is: a layer of fresh jasmine flowers, tea, flowers, tea etc... Between each layer there is a fine mesh which keeps the flowers separated from the tea. Since Jasmine flowers are very expensive they are used repeatedly but by the 9th time the flavor in the flowers is virtually exhausted. At this point they are useable in this particular form - blend components for visual presentation of tea.

Medicinal Usage

Jasmine flowers and their essential oil can be used to help support melancholy, chest and respiratory complaints, nervous tension, menstrual problems and general tiredness. Culpeper said that "it disperses crude humours, and is good for cold and cararrhous constitutions, but not for the hot." The oil has long been considered an aphrodisiac, and a supporter of symptoms for frigidity. Jasmine tea was prescribed as a mild sedative, and a supportive for headache.

Miscellaneous

A native of south-west Asia, the earliest record that jasmine was cultivated in England dates from the sixteenth century. It was mainly grown in gardens for its sweet fragrance. Oil of jasmine was used in perfumery, while the flowers were added to pot-pourri.
