    mrssmurf2 - Jasmine tea is one of my favourites, must admit I never thought of any beneficial health benefits. The good feel factor, yes, definitely a soothing, calming drink for me, dont know about weight loss or lowering cholesterol, maybe if I stopped drinking it for a while I might put on weight? I am not willing to try out this experiment, I would suffer withdrawal smptoms sure.

    I drink lots of tea during the day, some of it decaf, as for contraindications or side effects, I found this link, but am not sure, has anyone ever been told to avoid tea?

    Thanks Whitby

    I found this for green tea on the same website

    Bit worried about the anti-platelet and blood pressure contradictions as I am on tablets for both of these but I presume you would have to drink vast amounts.

    The calming effect you mention I have found with most herbal teas, such as peppermint tea and camomile tea. I don't know about jasmine tea, but I am certainly going to give it a try! Thanks for mentioning!

    Tried Jasmine tea and didn't really like the taste, I drink green tea most days and find it much more refreshing than normal tea.
