Description: Jasmine Green Tea is one of the most popular teas in China. Jasmine is picked in the heat of the day, when the flowers are closed tight. When Jasmine blossoms are blended with the green tea leaves, they create this fragrant and refreshing tea. It also offers a large number of health benefits, with a history of use dating back 4,000 years.

Green Tea has proven antioxidant properties. It helps the body maintain its natural good health and enhance immune functions. Jasmine, native to the Persian Gulf, was brought to china in the third century A.D. Green tea enriched with the scent of jasmine flowers has long been one of the favorite healthy beverages in china. Jasmine has traditionally been popular for its comforting, relaxing and warming qualities, for brightening one's mood, and as a soothing digestive beverage. Prince of Peace tea is made from fragrant jasmine flowers combined with mild green tea leaves, creating a delicious aromatic beverage.

Prince of Peace Organic Jasmine Green Tea is sourced from the certified organic tea plantation in China. One of the key ingredients in Jasmine Green Tea is polyphenol catechins, which has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants combat free radicals which can cause cell damage. Recent scientific research has investigated green tea's benefits toward maintaining cardiovascular health, strong immunity and proper cellular tissue growth.*

In the bundle of gifts I got from Janefan.
It had paper packaging, and I think may have aged away it's strong flavor.
I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt.
Either way paper is not ideal storage for teabags *shrug*

I am not recommending this tea.
