How To Make Jasmine Tea

When drinking jasmine tea, be sure to enjoy its soothing aroma and soft aftertaste. If the aftertaste is astringent try a different jasmine tea or lower your steeping temperature or shorten your steeping time. Jasmine tea should be light with an aroma and aftertaste like a fine perfume... Just drink it! Jasmine tea has some antiviral and antibacterial properties that help in the prevention of colds and influenza. It is widely believed that gargling with jasmine tea can prevent illness.

Ingredients to make Jasmine Tea

  • 1 tsp loose leaf jasmine tea
  • 3/4 cup filtered water

Steps to make Jasmine Tea

  1. Place the tea leaves in a cup. Boil the water and let it simmer. Turn off the gas and pour over the leaves.
  2. Cover for 2 to 3 minutes, depending upon one's taste you can use less tea or more water.
  3. Jasmine tea is best steeped with filtered water that is simmering not boiling. Let the leaves settle at the bottom and sip away.
My Tip: You can use less tea or more water if you are brewing jasmine pearls which only take a few pearls per cup or jasmine flowering tea, one flower is enough for a large mug or whole pot of tea.
