5.3 The Indian Chai - Jasmine Green Tea

Jasmine tea is the most popular flower-scented tea in East Asia. Its enchanting, unforgettable aroma is created through an artisanal method of tea scenting that dates back more than 800 years. Jasmine blossoms are gathered during midsummer evenings and spread amongst tea leaves over several successive nights. Because dried tea leaves are hydroscopic, they readily absorb floral essences like jasmine. Refreshingly fragrant, jasmine has been regarded as the perfect digestive tea for centuries. Jasmine is a pleasantly aromatic plant that promotes relaxation and reduces stress. Combining both the health benefits of green tea and Jasmine flowers, it has been loved by Imperial Families for hundreds of years in China to stimulate appetite and digestion, reduce anxiety, and improve skin. This romantic tea can be enjoyed any time but is especially pleasant in the evening

What necessary words… super, a brilliant idea

iHerb Code

+Lindsay: If a jasmine tea has a lot of flowers mixed in then it is usually not really great quality. If the ingredients say 3% flavouring then it must be artificially fragranced tea. The Lychee black is usually artificial too although we are always being told that they are naturally scented but it is impossible to have such a strong sweet flavour. Naturally scented include jasmine, rose, osmanthus, orchid or combined with fruit peels. Please be well aware.

Rohan Jain

How do I know if it’s natural scented Jasmine tea? The adagio tea I have, has these flower components in it, I supposed these aren’t good quality then? I always wonder what “3% flavouring” on twinings label mean. Do they have the real spice/flowers in there, or do they add oil or stuff? And there’s these lychee black loose tea I bought from local carrefour. It looks like normal black tea, and tastes really sweet. Could it be natural? What are the normal natural scented tea?
