We’ve added some delicious new flavored teas to our collection here at The English Tea Store. Each has their own benefits and we’re here to share more about them.
First Flavor : JASMINE
What is Jasmine? Jasmine is a common name for the plants in the species “Jasminium”. There are over 200 species of Jasmine from Asia, Europe & Africa. The name Jasmine translates to mean “fragrant flower” in Persian. Jasmine prefers sun to shade. The way Jasmine is planted is VERY technical. So if you plan on trying to plant some, make sure you do your research first!
To make jasmine into its consumable form, the blossoms are added to a bag of dry tea leaves. The flower only opens at night so only unopened blossoms are used to make tea & therefore blooms in the bag of tea overnight.
Jasmine is used as a decoration but also for many health benefits!
Aromatherapy is the number one reason Jasmine has been integrated into tea. It is known to promote relaxation and reduce stress. The aroma of this beautiful flower is found to offer sedative effects, such as calming the mind…
In a study done by the European Journal of Applied Psychology, 24 healthy volunteers were studied for their effects after consuming Jasmine tea. The Jasmine tea odor calmed mood and significantly decreased heart rate. This could be beneficial to those with high blood pressure.
Not only is it amazing smelling, the lotion & tea form of jasmine is also used for many other purposes form such as:
headaches, sunburn, irritability, anxiety, sunstroke, pain, anxiety, & uterine problems
