In China Jasmine 'Tisane' is drunk in China it is known as Jasmine flower tea. Some varieties of Jasmine flowers are also added to make another type of tea tea which commonly has a green tea base or oolong tea base.

Jasmine flower are plucked very early in the morning when the petals are firmly closed as they only open during the might. After storing in a cool place until around 7:00 in the evening, the petals will have then begun to open.
