Traditionally Jasmine flowers are used to make tea. The tea absorbs the fragrance and flavour from the moisture of the Jasmine blossoms.
Chinese legend says that over four thousand years ago, green tea was accidentally discovered. Today green tea is used to treat problems including depression, headaches, gastrointestinal disorders, aches, and pains. It is also used to boost the immune system, to prolong life, to detoxify, and to provide energy.
Green Tea for Health and Long Life
Teas generally all come from the tea plant; what causes each tea to differ is how it is prepared. Green tea differs from oolong and blank tea because the active components stay unchanged because it is not fermented. In addition to various vitamins, nutrients, and minerals, green tea contains organic chemicals called polyphenols, or epigallocatechin gallate, that produce its medicinal properties.
Health Benefits of Green Tea
Early scientific studies are showing that green tea may be able to lower cholesterol, especially the dangerous LDL cholesterol. They also suggest that this tea might improve cardiovascular health by causing blood platelets to be less sticky.
Green tea is known to be a detoxifier and an antioxidant and can help prevent atherosclerosis.
Other studies show the possibility of green tea having the ability to restrain cancer. The polyphenols in green tea stopped the spreading of melanoma cells in scientific experiments on animals and may also be able to lower the risk of certain cancers in humans.
Green tea also has the ability to reduce bacteria causing dental cavities and harmful bacteria found in the stomach.
