This tea is grown and handpicked on the Balung Plantation in the rain forest of Northeast Borneo.
Aquilaria Malaccensis also known as Gaharu or Agarwood, has been trusted by Chinese, Greek, Indian (Ayurvedic) and Tibetan physicians for centuries in treating an impressive range of ailments. Agarwood is an evergreen plant that can grow up to fourty metres high from the ground.
Research shows that the leaves of Aquilaria Malaccensis contain compounds with anti-ageing effects due to its content of Vitamin E and Decanoic acid, making the plant a commodity in the cosmetic industry.
In Southeast Asia, Agarwood Tea is believed to help lower blood sugar and blood pressure levels. It is also effective against digestive problems like flatulence and constipation.
There are many descriptions of Gaharu’s medical benefits in the classic Chinese, “Compendium of Materia Medica (Bencao Gangmu).” It is a pharmaceutical text written by Li Shizhen during the Ming Dynasty of China (first draft of text in 1578) and, “ Herbal Preparation (Bencao Beiyao) ” essay by Wang Ang (1694).
Agarwood Tea is made solely from the leaves of Aquilaria Malaccensis, giving it a slightly bitter, delicate flavour.
