Product Description

Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis (Green Tea) + Jasminum spp. (Jasmine)

Plant Family: Theaaceae (Tea family) + Oleaceae (Olive family)

Botanical Description (Camellia sinensis):
Camellia sinensis is an evergreen shrub or small tree native to East Asia, particularly China and India. It belongs to the Theaceae family and is the source of various types of tea, including green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and white tea. The leaves of Camellia sinensis are dark green, glossy, and leathery, with serrated edges. The plant produces small, white, fragrant flowers with yellow stamens, although these flowers are not typically used in tea production. Green tea is made from the unfermented leaves of Camellia sinensis and is prized for its delicate flavor, aroma, and numerous health benefits.

Botanical Description (Jasmine):
Jasmine is a genus of flowering plants in the Oleaceae family, native to tropical and subtropical regions of Eurasia, Australasia, and Oceania. Several species of jasmine are used to flavour tea, including Jasminum sambac (Arabian jasmine) and Jasminum officinale (Common jasmine). Jasmine plants are characterized by their fragrant white or yellow flowers, which bloom in clusters and emit a sweet, floral scent, especially in the evening. Jasmine flowers are hand-picked and dried before being added to tea leaves to infuse them with their aroma and flavour.

Introduction:
Jasmine green tea is a popular and aromatic beverage enjoyed worldwide for its delicate flavour, floral aroma, and numerous health benefits. It is made by combining green tea leaves with jasmine flowers, allowing the tea leaves to absorb the fragrance and flavour of the jasmine blossoms during the drying process. Jasmine green tea has been cherished for centuries in traditional Chinese culture for its refreshing taste and soothing properties. It is prized for its ability to promote relaxation, reduce stress, improve digestion, and boost immunity. Jasmine green tea is commonly consumed as a hot or cold beverage and is often served with meals or enjoyed as a refreshing pick-me-up throughout the day.
