Loose Leaf Tea
Botanical Name: Orthosiphon stamineus
Java tea is a plant. The leaves and stem tips are used to make medicine.
Java tea is sometimes taken as “irrigation therapy.” This means it is taken along with lots of fluids to increase urine flow. It is also used for bladder and kidney disorders, including bacterial infections and kidney stones; liver and gallbladder problems, including gallstones; gout; and achy joints (rheumatism).
Java tea might increase the loss of body water through the urine (diuretic effect), stop spasms, and help fight bacteria.
