Jasmine Pearls

Jasmine Pearls are created with love from an ancient tradition to create a delicious, smooth green tea that can be steeped multiple times.  In the early spring when the first baby green tea leaves bud they are delicately selected and harvested by hand. The baby green tea leaves are gently and meticulously hand rolled into tiny pearls.  The unopened Jasmine Flowers are spread over the new baby green tea pearls and allowed to release their essence and aroma. A delicate process allowing the blossoms of the Jasmine Flower to infuse their aroma.  In the early morning the Jasmine flowers are removed.  This process is repeated for up to 6 days.

Jasmine Pearls contain plant-based powerful nutrients known as polyphenols called catechins. Catechin is a tannin peculiar to green tea, it is a powerful, water soluble polyphenol and antioxidant that is easily oxidized. Green tea contains four main catechin substances: EC, ECG, EGC and EGCG, all of which are inclusively called catechin.  Green Tea also contains polyphenols, catechins, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), tannin, gallic acid and caffeine. 

EGCG is the most powerful; as an antioxidant it is about 25-100 times more potent than vitamins C and E and one cup of green tea has antioxidant effects greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots, or strawberries.

Catechins are natural antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and provide other benefits. Catechins can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage. These free radicals play a role in aging and many types of diseases. The most impressive catechin in green tea is epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which has been linked to many health benefits, from weight loss, improved blood sugar control, heart health and oral health.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21432397Health Benefits of Green Tea:1) Tea polyphenols are powerful antioxidants. They decrease the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease, and also inhibit action of reactive oxygen species mediating the oxidation of DNA associated with carcinogenesis 2) Tea polyphenols induce detoxifying enzymes, glucuronosyl transferases, eliminating active forms of carcinogens and other toxicants, accounting for the lower cancer risk. 3) Tea polyphenols lower duplication rates of cancer cells and inhibit the growth of cancer, increase apoptosis and lower angiogenesis. 4) Tea polyphenols alter the intestinal bacterial flora, suppressing undesirable bacteria and favoring growth of beneficial bacteria. 5) Aging phenomena, and diseases associated with the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) are inhibited.
