The Japanese are known around the world for their habits that contribute to a long and healthy life. In the book Ikigi: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life,  one of the reasons for this was revealed: the consumption of Sanpin-cha, uma mistura especial de chá verde e jasmim.

According to the authors, the mixture of green tea and jasmine flowers play fundamental roles in the health of consumers. They help keep the Japanese minds agile and protect the body’s cells from various age-related damage.

The drink is rich in antioxidants that help maintain physical and mental well-being. Jasmine flowers reduce the impact of stress, improve mood and help calm the nerves.

In addition, the properties found in the drink also help to reduce cells responsible for the development of cervical cancer.
