Jasmine Green Tea
Botanical: Camellia Sinensis
Health Benefits: This tea has undergone very little oxidizing so it retains many
valuable nutrients. Catechins, a chemical compound present in this brew, stimulate
fat oxidation and energy expenditure, making it easier for our body to process
everything that we eat and drink. It’s also said to boost cognitive function and can
reduce the risks of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Jasmine is a widespread climbing vine that has a distinct and highly aromatic flower. Jasmine Tea has been enjoyed in China since around the fifth century, after the introduction of high grown Jasmine to the Fujian province. In Northern China, Jasmine Green Tea is often served to welcome guests. Because this golden liquor is
light and thirst quenching, it can be continuously imbibed over an evening without leaving you feeling full. As with any good green tea, the leaves can be re-steeped numerous times retaining their light and delicate flavours.
Brewing Jasmine Green Tea
To get the fresh and aromatic fusion of Jasmine Green Tea, add 1 teaspoon of our Yahava Jasmine Green Tea to 220 ml of boiling water at 80°c for around 2 minutes.
The Common Gull Butterfly
The Common Gull Butterfly, like wild Jasmine, thrives throughout much of Asia. The open wing pattern is striking but rarely seen because this butterfly always sits with its wings closed. The Gulls are nectar lovers and feed on flowers including Jasmine. They gather in great numbers as they prepare for their annual migrations.
