The award winning jiaogulan gynostemma tea is grown on small organic farms in the highlands of Thailand where the air, water and soil are some of the best in the world.
After harvesting, the leaves are pan dried, immediately followed with a forced air drying method to preserve the integrity of the leaves.
The leaves are then de-stemmed before being packed as the premium grade loose leaves.
In Asia, Gynostemma is known as a ‘magical grass’. In Asia they say : it strengthens the immune system and has been used for a variety of health concerns. It contains substances called gypenosides which are similar to the active constituents in ginseng, but jiaogulan contains over three times as many. Furthermore, jiaogulan is believed to have a superior action to ginseng, being more supportive without causing over stimulation. In China it is often referred to as ‘women’s ginseng’ since it is considered to be much kinder to women’s body systems than ginseng.
This exclusive nonpareil grade is fresh and organic, no fertilizer, no pesticides, produced in the mountainous regions of Northern Thailand, it is certainly the best grade available.
