Hand-processed Sacred Lotus Leaf
This is a very high-grade material.
Aroma: mild herbal
Color: green and light green
Composition: clean leaf
Botanical Name: Nelumbo Nucifera
Also called: Laxmi Lotus, Indian Lotus, and Asian Lotus
Sacred Lotus Leaves are essentially Lily Pads, except they grow above the water. This makes them different from water lilies, whose leaves rest on top of the water.
Nelumbo Nucifera leaves have large stem-like veins in them. That material has been removed, as well as any small material that is not pure.
A sweet-tasting tea made from lotus leaf is soothing and relaxing during hot summer days and is generally considered a health drink.
Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf contains nuciferine, which has been shown in clinical studies to possibly assist with relaxation.
