Amazing Benefits Of Flower Tea


I always love the scents of floral. So, I developed this hobby in mixing my own essential oil blends for my daily scents therapy. Apart from that, I also make it a must to drink at least a cup of flower tea daily. Scents of flower not only simulate your organ, but it can also be a good benefit if you drink the tea too.

There are many benefits to drinking flower tea.

  1. Improves digestion
  2. Relieve stress
  3. Reduces pain and inflammation
  4. Nourishes skin
  5. Boosts up metabolism and promote weight loss
  6. Slow down the process of ageing
It will be a long list if I want to type it out here. So I just list down 6 main benefits which are common for ordinary people sought out.

Some of my favourite flower tea which I always stock up at home - Jasmine, Chrysanthemum,  Lavender, Butterfly Pea Flower, Osmanthus and Rosebud. 

How to prepare delicious flower tea?

There are 3 ways of making flower tea.

1. Just a flower tea style.

Wash the flowers. Then soaked it in boiling water for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove it and drink. Well, you can add honey or sugar. But for health purpose, I would skip that.

2. Coupling the flowers

The benefits of flower tea can be enhanced by coupling it with tea leaves. My three favourite coupling is chrysanthemum with green tea, rosebud with white tea and osmanthus with black tea.

3. Boiling in the cooker

Mixed all the other ingredients such as red dates, birds nest, peach gum, rock sugar, goji berries, longan. monk fruits and many other herbs which depend on the recipe. Benefits will be different when you prepare your tea in this way too.  

For the first and second method of preparing, I usually use a tea bag for convenient purpose. You know all those flowers and tea leaves can get in your way when drinking. I can save my hassle straining the residues.

Below some of my personal favourite flower tea recipes. Simple preparation and it won't take much of your time to prepare this for good health benefits.

Pour the blue colour butterfly pea flower tea into the pot. Then add in lime juice. Surprisingly, by this time you will be amazed the blue colour tea turn into dark purple due to the acidic effect. Kids will love to watch this colour changing process. Add in honey to taste and pour in the sparkling water for some refreshing effect. You can always use filtered water and ice.
