Reported benefits of jasmine tea include weight loss and relaxation, while green tea increases blood flow by reducing cholesterol and may help to prevent Alzheimer's disease. It may also be useful for people with diabetes because of its ability to stabilize blood sugar levels.
Although jasmine and green tea have been linked to weight loss, there is conflicting evidence. The catechins in jasmine tea may help to improve metabolism to burn calories faster, while EGCG may have the same effect in green tea, but some studies show no effect whatsoever.
The relaxing effects of jasmine tea are attributed to its pleasant aroma as well as its flavonoid antioxidants.
