Jasmine Flower Tea
Hi Everyone, I have the perfect Springtime tea for you: Jasmine Flower Tea. It’s aromatic, floral, soothing and delicious.
To me, this tea is like drinking a bouquet of flowers. It’s just a beautiful, beautiful tea experience. There’s nothing like a cup of Jasmine Flower Tea to take your mind off of any of life’s woes…
We are using our partner, bMAKER’s, food grade Jasmine Flowers to make this Jasmine Flower Tea 🙂
To sweeten or not to sweeten
Jasmine Flower Tea tastes so good and pure on its own; I personally, do not sweeten Jasmine Flower Tea but I tend not to sweeten tea or coffee drinks with a few exceptions or if I am in the mood for something sweet.
You can certainly add honey, agave or your preferred sweetener to this tea.

Can you add milk to Jasmine Flower Tea?
Sure, if you want to. I personally do not because the tea is beautiful on it’s own and I am more of a tea purist – that’s just my opinion! I feel like milk would mute the floral aspect of the tea. If you love milk in your tea though, have at it!
