Orthosiphon stamineus is a traditional herb that is widely grown in
tropical areas. The two general species, Orthosiphon stamineus
"purple" and Orthosiphon stamineus "white" are traditionally used
to treat diabetes, kidney and urinary disorders, high blood
pressure and bone or muscular pain.
Also known as Java tea, it was possibly introduced to the west in
the early 20th century. Misai Kucing is popularly consumed as a
herbal tea. The brewing of Java tea is similar to that for other
teas. It is soaked in hot boiling water for about three minutes,
and honey or milk is then added. It can be easily prepared as
garden tea from the dried leaves. There are quite a number of
commercial products derived from Misai Kucing.
