I looked around to see if there was any information about Jasmine Tea, but found very little.

My question is whether Jasmine Tea is a beneficial / neutral / avoid ...for Type O?

I have been a huge coffee drinker with little problem, however since finding the BTD my daily intake of coffee is now 2 cups compared to 4-6 cups with espresso shots.  I now drink hot / iced jasmine tea that I brew, and seltzer (or club soda) most of the day.

Thank you

John

"Jasmine tea" only means there are jasmine flowers in whatever tea is used for a base....
mostly black tea is used......check labels

here s a search, read through the older threads and build your own opinion....

think ERFYT has a herb list for each type.....might want to check the values....but in general, consider unlisted items, neutrals

The most recent rating of a food can be found using typebase:

Jasmine tea is usually made with green tea, so it's beneficial for us!

Green tea is benefical for Os, while black  tea is an avoid. However, black tea is OK for O Gatherers (some individuals who are type O can  tolerate black tea just fine, and you might be one of them.) It's also been the  general consensus on the boards that black tea is "less bad" for Os than coffee is. Even if you're not one of those individual Os who do fine on black tea, it's still a better choice than coffee, and a good "stepping stone" if it's too much for you to jump straight from coffee to green tea.

Yerba mate is another good tea choice for Os. I add blackstrap molasses and rice milk to mine, and I think it tastes similar to coffee.

If the jasmine tea you've been drinking is jasmine green tea, then go on drinking it!

Where I live, the Jasmine tea is all made from green, which would be rated the same as green tea on your food list.  Good for you for cutting down on that coffee!  A good direction to go in!

Find a local Asian store where things are cheap there.  You will find a huge box with Jasmine Green Tea emblazoned on the front with 100 teabags in it.  It will cost you maybe 8 bucks at most.  And welcome to the forum!

Ever tried the Jasmine Pearls? Someone picked them up for me years ago. If you like jasmine tea, they're the top of the line, they say.

I prefer "Gunpowder Green Tea" as a substitute for coffee.

Powerful stuff, that Gunpowder!  I can see how it would be a substitute for coffee!

Looks like top of the line stuff.

After reading the description is sounds pretty much like the Gunpowder Green I get from Harney & Sons:  http://www.harney.com/Gunpowder-Green-Loose-tea-by-the-pound/productinfo/41638/ less the jasmine.  I pay $19.00/lb for my Gunpowder Green and your product is $51.90/lb.  Jasmine must be pretty expensive!

I drink green tea with Jasmine every morning for breakfast. The jasmine really gives the green tea a nice flavor.
