The Details

Derived from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, Jasmine Green Tea distinguishes itself with the infusion of jasmine. While the base tea remains green, the addition of jasmine flowers during processing imparts a unique and fragrant aroma.

All of our green tea is subjected to heat after plucking to halt oxidation and maintain its green hue. This meticulous process retains many beneficial compounds, making this floral version of green tea an alluring pick for the health-savvy sipper. Famous variations like Moroccan mint tea often use green teas as their base and a jasmine infusion is a fantastic variation. 

Caffeine Kick in Jasmine Green Tea

On the caffeine spectrum, Jasmine Green Tea offers a milder boost. Expect to find approximately 20-45 milligrams of caffeine in a 250 ml cup. For those not well-versed in caffeine metrics, consider this:

  • Black tea contains 47-90 milligrams of caffeine per 250 ml.
  • Your standard brewed coffee? That's between 95-200 milligrams.

Why Less Caffeine?

Two factors play pivotal roles here: the type of the tea plant and its subsequent processing.

Camellia sinensis sinensis is primarily geared towards green teas like our Jasmine variant. Native to China, it's cold-hardy and typically results in a brew that's softer on the caffeine.

Whereas Camellia sinensis assamica, from the warmer Assam region of India, is often destined for black and dark teas. Its broad leaves yield a stronger caffeine punch.

Jasmine Green Tea's light process ensures limited oxidation also contributes  to a lower caffeine profile. Black teas, meanwhile, undergo an extensive withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying routine that often ups their caffeine ante.

Brewing Jasmine Green Tea

  • Boil water.
  • Add one bag of our Jasmine Green Tea leaves per cup.
  • Steep for 1-3 minutes. Remember, over-brewing could lead to bitterness.

The outcome? A fragrant, nuanced beverage.

Flavour Profile

Grassy undertones, floral notes, sweetness, and a hint of astringency intermingle. These layers emerge from tannins and polyphenols. A well-crafted cup balances bitterness with an underlying sweet finish.
