Jasmine tea is associated with a range of health benefits and is known for its esoteric delicacy, elegance, and sophistication. Not only the flowers but also the leaves of Jasmine have an intoxicating scent, making it popular in the perfume space and in the scented tea realm. It is versatile and can be blended with green, black, white, or oolong teas to produce a flavoursome and highly aromatic tea. The addition of these other teas is what gives Jasmine tea its caffeine content.



Does Jasmine Tea Contain Caffeine and How Much?

Unblended and pure Jasmine Tea does not naturally contain caffeine. However, it is blended with other teas to elevate flavour and benefits – making this tea truly tantalizing and enticing. The caffeine content in Jasmine tea depends on several factors, including the kind of true tea added. True teas are made from the Camellia Sinensis plant, which contains natural caffeine. A cup of Jasmine tea could thus have anywhere from 20 to 60 mg of caffeine, depending on the tea it is blended with and other factors. For instance, Purple Jasmine tea is a blend of purple tea and Jasmine green tea, and both Purple tea and Green tea contain caffeine.


The other factors that affect the caffeine content are the growing and harvesting conditions and methods of processing. The brewing time would have the final effect on the amount of caffeine per cup of tea. A shorter steep time will release less caffeine.


The fact is that caffeine is added to Jasmine tea by blending it with other true teas – as a herbal tea, Jasmine tea has zero caffeine content. Jasmine tea when blended with Green tea becomes caffeinated while enhancing the flavour of Green tea. This is true of any Green tea that is added to Jasmine tea. Jasmine tea blended with Black tea would contain about 45 mg of caffeine per cup. The safe amount of caffeine per day is known to be up to 400 mg and hence it is important to know the type of true tea blended with Jasmine tea.
