The benefits of drinking flower tea

Different types of tea have varying benefits, but in general, floral teas can boost your metabolism and help you lose weight. They are rich in antioxidants – especially in green tea – and can strengthen your immune system. Flower teas are also known to be brilliant for your skin, protecting your physical barrier from harmful UV rays and reducing signs of aging. They have been proven to improve your circulation and respiratory health and aid digestion. Furthermore, drinking flower tea can greatly reduce stress.

Types of floral tea

You can pair different flowers and teas, both with specific healing properties, and be rewarded with a distinct flavour profile. The key to choosing the perfect ingredients lies with the pairing of an herbal flower with a kind of tea. Here are some kinds of floral tea you may like to choose.

Jasmine tea: Scented with the fragrant aroma of the jasmine flower, jasmine floral tea is packed full of health benefits. This tea is bursting with antioxidants, is great for those who want to lose weight and does wonders for your heart and oral health. Drinking it frequently may help protect against certain chronic illnesses. It is said that Jasmine tea may protect against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and possibly lower the risk of type 2 diabetes. Paired with green tea.

Chrysanthemum tea: Popular in the east, chrysanthemum tea has cooling properties and is known to promote fluid production, making this the ideal tea to drink on hot summer days. This mild, calming tea is also very soothing to the upper respiratory tract and is effective in easing coughs and sore throats, usually caused by heat-induced illnesses and dry weather conditions. If you’ve had a lot of greasy or spicy foods, this floral tea will help you detox. Can be cold brewed. Paired with green tea.

Osmanthus tea: Another popular tea in the east, osmanthus tea has a multitude of health benefits. It warms and nourishes your digestive system, helping us detox and improving our skin complexion. It also helps nourish our lungs, reducing coughs and phlegm. Paired with black tea.

Rosebud tea: A much loved sweet and fragrant floral tea by women all around the globe, rosebud tea not only looks gorgeous in the teapot, it also possesses a wide range of health benefits and is regarded as a “beauty tea”. Rosebud tea contains a high level of vitamin C, improves your circulation, relieves menstrual discomforts, alleviates anxiety, brightens up your complexion and helps your skin lock in the moisture. Paired with white tea.

How to make tea

The best thing about these flower tea recipes is that you can adjust the amounts and types of teas to suit your taste. Here is a step-by-step guide on making that perfect tea to enjoy.

  1. Boil water and let it cool.
  2. Steep your floral tea paired with the desired tea in 500mls of hot water in the teapot for a few minutes. Adjust the time to your preference. If you want a stronger floral taste, steep for longer.
  3. Pour out the tea to serve. You can add honey to sweeten.
