Jasminum sambac is an ancient plant from the olive family throughout Asia and the Middle East. This form is commonly used for cosmetics, fragrances and teas. Commercial teas containing Jasmine are often treated and blended with other tea leaves which are fully fermented black teas. The dried jasmine flower used for this sun infusion contains no black tea leaves. The flower also loses its characteristic sweet fragrance during the drying process as essential oils, or alkanes, evaporate.
"Jasmine Herbal Tea are petite naturally dried jasmine buds which have been known to aid in the improvement of digestion, blood circulation and assist in the acceleration of metabolism."
Jasmine flowers boost metabolism and energy, readily burning calories. Plant compounds encourage weight loss by reducing the absorption of fats and cholesterols. This action (proprietary blend) is believed to act as an anticoagulant, further reducing the risk of blood clots and stroke, while restoring vascularity. More than weight management, Jasmine acts as adaptogenic herbs, balancing both spirit and harmony while enlivening the senses. Anxiety is reduced without causing drowsiness, lending immune system support.
This floral sun infusion includes homegrown, freshly dried, Roman Chamomile (chamomile nobile). The chamomile lends the sweet, floral flavor lost from the dried jasmine, while quelling any excitable feelings with chamomile's classic calming effects. Together, these two floral infusions have anti-inflammatory properties with flavonoids that soothe mucous membranes throughout the digestive tract, effectively maintaining oral hygiene. Chemically, the two complement one another for a beautifully balanced and refreshing blend, especially enjoyable on a hot and humid summer day.
