Since ancient times Jasmine has been thought of as the ‘queen of flowers’ and has been associated with sensuality, opulence, luxury and the sacred in many cultures. Jasmine is a climbing vine in the olive family and is prized for its beauty and delicate fragrance. The rose-like blooms have a naturally sweet mild flowery taste commonly used as an herbal tea, alone or blended with green or black tea. It is used to flavor not only beverages but also a variety of desserts.
Jasmine flowers have long been used for their therapeutic and medicinal properties. Jasmine's popular fragrance is uplifting and calming and used in aromatherapy and perfumery. When drunk as a tea, it acts as an anti-oxidant and is thought to have an antiseptic action and of course, there are its aphrodisiac properties.
