What is Jasmine Tea?

Jasmine Dragon Pearl and Jasmine Silver Needle are exquisite teas infused with the scent of jasmine flowers. They are a lightly processed tea, full of antioxidants, making them some of the healthiest teas to drink. To make the jasmine pearls the young tips and buds of the Camellia Sinensis plant are picked and hand rolled into ‘pearls’ and then left overnight with jasmine flowers to absorb the heady scent. Hand rolling the pearls is a tradition that began over 1300 years ago when a Chinese Emperor wanted to give an original gift of love.

Jasmine is the most famous scented tea in China and in traditional Chinese medicine jasmine is used as a relaxant, sedative and aphrodisiac. Drinking jasmine tea is good for the teeth, hair and skin and can boost the immune system. It improves the digestive process and can ease muscle pains and aches and lower cholesterol and is a natural antibiotic helping to provide a defence against bacterial infection.

With its exotic scent, drinking jasmine tea can have an almost tranquillising effect. It can calm the nerves and soothe the spirit and reduce stress. These jasmine teas have a fresh, sweet, floral, almost velvety taste with no hint of bitterness.

Abbey Tea offer their favourite Jasmine Dragon Pearl Tea and one of China's finest tea, Jasmine Silver Needle for you to try. When infused jasmine pearls release an intensely beautiful scent, and almost seductively unravel in hot water to provide a light refreshing tea, good to drink at any time of the day.
