Jasmine Tea Health Benefits

Jasmine tea’s health benefits are most notably procured in tea form. It is quite rare, however, to find a jasmine tea that is strictly jasmine tea. The flavor of jasmine is quite mild on its own, so the flavor is typically infused into a more bodied tea, such as green tea, oolong tea, and black tea.

And while jasmine has plenty of healing power on its own – especially through its scent – working in conjunction with these other powerful teas raises its healing potential to something truly wonderful.
