Jiaogulan – gynostemma tea
Jiaogulan – Gynostemma
Jiaogulan originates in Southern China. It was originally brought to the attention of the west following an internal survey of the health of the inhabitants of China. People living in villages where jiaogulan tea is drunk were shown to live far longer than other parts of China and regularly live well past 100 years old.
Gynostemma or gynostemma pentaphyllum has since been the subject of over 40 scientific trials and the gynostemma benefits include improving the function of the heart, liver, kidneys,lungs and immune system while having a potentially positive effect on blood sugar levels (1,2,3,4,5,6).
White Lotus gynostemma tea is produced from the highest quality jiao gu lan available. Traditionally jiaogulan is drunk from loose leaf tea to maximise its effectiveness. Pyramid tea bags replicate this effect by allowing larger high quality leaves and full tea perfusion unlike flat tea bags which can only accommodate low-grade tea and dust. The tea bags are sealed in a tin rather than cardboard as freshness is vital to the therapeutic effect.
