Jasmine plants are a group of flowering shrubs and vines in the olive family famous for their fragrant white or yellow flowers. While they are grown primarily for their fragrance, they are also used for decoration in hair or for leis, in weddings and festivals, or for religious ceremonies. Of cultural significance throughout the world, they are considered national symbols in Syria, Hawaii, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Philippines and more. When used in tea making, it is interesting to note that only the fragrance and oils of the flowers are valued, with the actual petals removed after the infusion process.
