This highly prized adaptogenic herb has a very long history of use in China where they call it Xiancao, (immortal grass or herb of immortality). Indigo Herbs has sought out this adaptogentic botanical because of its ability to help generate a serene and healthy glow for all who use it. This comes in the form of Indigo Herbs Gynostemma Powder that has a dynamic range of applications and can be used by all.

Legend has it that the Chinese Emperor Fu Shou (lucky immortal) was one day visiting a distant region of his empire. Whilst stopping for respite, his servants boiled some water for everyone to drink (as was their custom to sanitize the water). As the water boiled, dried leaves from a nearby plant fell in and an aromatic liquid was created. Curious, the emperor drank some and found it very refreshing, soothing, slightly bitter as well as a little sweet. Thus Gynostemma / Jiaogulan tea was discovered. By the 13th century Gynostemma / Jiaogulan tea appeared in Chinese meditation texts. By the 16th century, the immortality herb was listed in a variety of holistic texts throughout China. In the 70s, a nationwide census in China identified a mountainous area with the largest percentage of centenarian inhabitants. Research into the lifestyle of these centenarians revealed a common dietary element; they all drank Gynostemma / Jiaogulan tea regularly.

Gynostemma is a member of the cucumber (cucurbitaceae) family and its natural habitat is southwest China. Unlike its relations in the same species it bears no fruit. Also this plant is dioecious meaning that both a male and female plant need to be present to make seed. This vine climbs and supports itself using tendrils that coil around other plants. The flowers are small, fleshy and open out into a pale green star shape.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Manufacture Process

Both the roots and the leaves are used for our Gynostemma Powder as all parts contain a suitable amount of chemical constituents. The Gynostemma pentaphyllum plants are cultivated in China where it is grown for the specific purpose of being used as a botanical powder. When the plant is mature every part of it is dug up and dried out of the sun. All parts are then identified and screened by experts before the plants are dehydrated further to be milled into a fine powder. This Gynostemma Powder is then tested so that there are no heavy metals or other pollutants within the plant matter. The powder is then ready to be shipped.   

Gynostemma / Jiaogulan appears to be relatively safe. Mild side-effects may include fatigue, lethargy, feeling of chest oppression, dry nose, dry throat, increased heart beat and rash. There are no reports of severe adverse reactions or complications.

neem powder
I have been rubbing the powder on my dog to deter flees and postpone the inevitable last resort of the monthly chemical squeeze. I shall also be mixing it into the soil around plants for diseases and hopefully cure Box blight.
