These leaves contain Mangiferin and Genkwanin, which have anti-diabetic, anti-cancer, antiviral, anti-tussive, anti-inflammation, anti-oxidant, expectorant and immunoregulation (1

These two components help our bodies in many ways! In some research articles, scientists showed that Aquilaria leaves reduce blood sugar level (anti-diabetic). It also has anti-cancer and antiviral properties. These leaves can also help us breathe by reducing inflammation and coughs. And if we get sick, they can help our body's immune system fight off the bad germs. 


 

 

What is agarwood tea?

The leaves derive from leaves that grow on "the wood of God",  Aquilaria Crassna, a legendary Eastern herb. Agarwood leaf beverage is not "tea", but "herbal infusion" because it is not Camellia Sinensis.

The delicate aroma with robust flavour makes it stand out from most of its brothers and sisters in the herbal infusion family.

How does it taste?

The first sip of this beverage is bitter, but this is then followed by a strong and long-lasting tangy taste that lingers in your mouth. You can feel this sensation in your throat.

"Bitter hey?" so why should I bother steeping it?

Not everyone appreciates bitterness, but it is quite beneficial as "Saponin has the property of precipitating and coagulating red blood cells. Some of the characteristics of saponins include the formation of foams in aqueous solutions, hemolytic activity, cholesterol-binding properties and bitterness "( Sodipo, O. A., Akiniyi JA, Ogunbamosu J. U (2000)).

What do the researchers say about this single-ingredient leaf - Aquilaria Crassna?

 1) Constipation relief:  Laxative effect from the ethanol extract of agarwood leaves (EEA) and Genkwanin Glycosides. Unlike many so-called "slim tea", where diarrhea is a big concern, the agarwood leaves' properties do not trigger this bowel movement (Mamoru Kakino, Gifu Pharmaceutical University)

 2) Better, deeper sleep: Terpenoids with sedative and anxiolytic effects found in agarwood leaves. It would relax your body and calm your mind (Mamoru Kakino, Gifu Pharmaceutical University). Adenosine in Aquilaria leaves (Feng and Yang 2012) facilitates sleep and dilates the blood vessels. It signals the body to become drowsy and tells us to sleep to recharge our energy reserves.

 3) Decrease cholesterol level: Polyphenol is another substance in our leaves, known for reducing the absorption of cholesterol in your body. (J Nutr Sci Vitaminol (Tokyo).)

 4) Contains methoxy flavone which is an anabolic agent, help build muscle combine with the right exercise

5)  Mangiferin in agarwood tea significantly lower levels of uric acid in the blood (cause solid crystals to form within the joint, known as "Gout"). Please see the 2017 research below from Agarwood, Science Behind the Fragrance

The ethanolic extract of A. sinensis leaves has been demonstrated to possess hypoglycemic effects. Research typically assesses this hypoglycemic effect using diabetic mice or rats. The extract significantly reduces blood glucose levels, which may be attributed to its blood sugar-reducing activity from 2α-hydroxy ursolic acid【Mei et al., 2013】. Additionally, both ethanolic and water extracts from A. sinensis leaves exhibit anti-hyperglycemic activity similar to insulin【Pranakhon et al., 2011】.

Fractions of ethanol, water, and ethyl acetate from A. malaccensis leaves also enhance glucose uptake by elevating levels of glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4), a crucial regulator of whole-body glucose homeostasis. These extracts have been found to increase GLUT4 levels more effectively than pioglitazone【Said et al., 2016】.

Chemical compounds in the ethanolic extract of A. sinensis leaves, such as mangiferin, iriflophenone 2-O-α-L-rhamnoside, iriflophenone 3-C-β-D-glucoside, and iriflophenone 3,5-C-β-D-diglucopyranoside, exhibit strong α-glucosidase inhibitory activity. These compounds act as antidiabetic agents, reducing blood glucose levels by controlling carbohydrate absorption from the intestine【Feng et al., 2011】.

Agarwood herbal infusion tea is made of selected young and fresh Agarwood leaves. Many science types of research have proved that they positively improve human health. For example, it offers better quality sleep, stress-reducing, and constipation relief based on regular consumption. And with the aid of modern technology, we are looking forward to discovering more benefits for health from Agarwood tea soon.

* Agarwood tea is not suitable to be consumed during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Please seek advice from your doctors or nutritionists.

 Brew: 1g per 160 ml boiling water, brewing time from 3-4 minutes; varying brewing time will increase the depth and strength of the tea depending on personal preferences and can be refilled up to 4 times.

(1g is around 18 leaf balls circa for a teapot or 12 balls for a cup. If it is too bitter for you, reduce the number of leaves or add more water for the next brew depending on your taste)

*Please note that you could blend Agarwood leaves with green tea or herbal infusion to alter the taste.

If you want it cold, drop in some ice.
