Sunflower brand jasmine tea is a mixture of green tea and jasmine blossoms. Like green tea, it has antioxidant effects, meaning it may fight off free radicals that can cause cancer. Drinking this tea also may have a therapeutic effect on lowering harmful cholesterol levels in your body, removing harmful arterial plaque and fighting arteriosclerosis, the University of Maryland Medical Center reports. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved sunflower jasmine tea as a medication. Side effects may occur from this natural herbal supplemental tea. Before starting any new supplement, speak to your doctor. Medications such as blood thinners will interfere with this supplemental tea, Drugs.com states.

Nervousness

Nervousness occurs as you consume too much caffeine in your diet. Jasmine tea contains stimulating chemicals such as theobromine and theophylline, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Both of these chemicals stimulate your nervous system, giving you the jitters. Drinking smaller amounts of this tea will help you end this side effect. Though drinking the tea may make you jittery, which is more than likely a result of the caffeine, the odor of the tea actually has a calming effect, according to a study in the October 2005 issue of the "European Journal of Applied Physiology."
