Spring Dragon Longevity Tea is Dragon Herbs’ flagship tonic tea. It is available in tea bags for easy preparation and ready consumption. It is adaptogenic, immune regulating, tonifying to the Lungs, Heart, Pancreas, Liver, Brain and Kidney. It was Dragon Herbs first offering and remains our flagship product. It is consumed around the world by thousands of people every day for its wonderful flavor and health benefits.

Spring Dragon Longevity Tea is a very special tea, unlike any other tea on the market. It is actually a classical form of an elixir that in China was literally called a “longevity tea.” Spring Dragon Longevity Tea has one main “bulk” or “raw” herb, Gynostemma leaf, plus 5 tonic herb extracts. Gynostemma is a remarkable herb known in Asia as “magical grass.” It has been reported to have a wide range of health-promoting benefits.



In Asia, Gynostemma is considered to be:

  • Invigorating (does not cause hyperactivity – not a stimulant)
  • Calming (promotes a sense of peace – not a sedative)
  • Antioxidant 
  • Immune-supporting in various ways – it may be consumed daily
  • A respiratory tonic 
  • A digestive aid
  • Gynostemma supports normal healthy functioning of the liver and cardiovascular organs and tissues.
  • The ultimate greatness of Gynostemma lies in its broad spectrum ADAPTOGENIC (stress modulating) quality. Adaptogenic herbs help improve the efficiency of the metabolic, neurological, immunologic, respiratory and endocrine systems in normal healthy people. Prolonged consumption of Gynostemma supports the adaptive capacity of people at every level of their life.

Gynostemma has “double-direction” activity

  • Gynostemma supports physiological balance to the body under a wide range of stressful circumstances.
  • Gynostemma has a double-direction, regulating, adaptogenic influence on the central nervous system. It is calming when one is overexcited and invigorating when one is fatigued. 
  • Gynostemma is widely known for its “spirit-lifting” effect on one’s mood.
  • Gynostemma may have a beneficial effect on the heart by supporting circulation.
  • Gynostemma helps balance the body’s metabolism. 
  • Gynostemma has developed an enormous reputation in Asia as a major aid in weight management programs. Gynostemma has been shown to have a double-direction activity with regard to weight. Gynostemma can be useful in reducing excessive body fat, when combined with a reasonable exercise program and a healthy diet that modulates caloric intake. Gynostemma may also help athletes, body builders or slim people to gain weight.

The main active ingredients in Gynostemma are known as saponins

  • The saponins in Gynostemma are called gypenosides. There are over 140 gypenosides in Dragon Herbs’ Gynostemma. 
  • These gypenosides are the constituents responsible for the adaptogenic qualities of this tonic herb.

Gynostemma – Ginseng at Tea Price

In 1972, a group of Japanese researchers reported that Gynostemma tea was being consumed as a daily “longevity tea” by large numbers of southern Chinese people. It was revered in the regions where it grows as “magical grass” because of its many reputed health benefits.

This led the Japanese researchers to study the constituents and pharmacology of Gynostemma. The researchers discovered that the chemical constituents responsible for the adaptogenic characteristics of Gynostemma are more than 180 different saponins called Gypenoside. Gypenosides are structurally and functionally very similar to ginsenosides, which are the active constituents of Ginseng root (Panax ginseng). In fact, many of them ARE ginsenosides, just in another plant than ginseng. This is the broadest known range of saponins in any one plant in nature. Ginseng, for example, has about 100 saponins (ginsenosides). The Gypenosides are so similar to the ginsenosides of Ginseng that in China, Gynostemma is called “Ginseng at tea price”.


  • Strong antifatigue effect
  • Energizing (not a stimulant)
  • Calming (promotes relaxation and a sense of peace – not a sedative)
  • Anti-aging (exhibits antioxidant activity)
  • Supportive of the body’s systemic double-direction immune response
  • A respiratory tonic (helps support a healthy respiratory system)
  • A digestive aid (Gynostemma is very soothing to the stomach by protecting the stomach lining)
  • Gynostemma has been shown in some studies to help to support normal healthy hepatic and cardiovascular function.
  • Gynostemma accelerates the body’s metabolism and helps maintain healthy blood sugar and blood fat levels already within a normal range. Maintaining healthy blood sugar and blood fat already within a normal range are critical steps in attaining healthy metabolic function, whether one wants to lose weight by reducing excessive body fat, gain weight by building lean muscle, or maintain healthy weight by helping regulate bodily functions.
  • Gynostemma has developed an enormous reputation in Asia as a major aid in weight management programs. Gynostemma has been shown to have a double-direction activity with regard to weight. Gynostemma can be useful in reducing excessive body fat, when combined with a reasonable exercise program and a healthy diet that modulates caloric intake. Gynostemma may also help athletes, body builders or excessively slim people to gain weight.
  • Although Gynostemma is not a laxative, it may help maintain healthy bowel movements.

Spring Dragon Longevity Tea is more than just a blend of 6 chopped herbs, it is a super-potent herbal formulation with potency on par with capsules and tinctures!

Traditionally, only botanicals that are suitable for steeping are delivered in a tea bag format. The steeping method limits typical tea bags’ ingredients to mostly leaves, flowers, and a few fruits, whose flavors and constituents can come out using steeping only. Therefore, many powerful botanicals that require decoction (extracting a substance by boiling) are excluded from using tea bags as a delivery system. For example, roots and mushrooms such as Reishi, Ginseng, Astragalus, and Eleuthero require a long cook time. Fruits such as Schizandra, Goji and Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) need shorter cooking than roots, but steeping alone will not produce their maximum potency and efficacy. As a result, these powerful botanicals are typically only available in capsules or tinctures.

Dragon Herbs has developed a special technology called Super Infusion Process (SIP™) that solves this age-old dilemma.

During the Super Infusion Process (SIP™), we optimally extract 5 premier tonic herbs (Schizandra, Goji, Astragalus, Eleuthero and Luo Han Guo) together, resulting in a thick, concentrated syrup. The syrup is then infused into premium grade Gynostemma leaves. The saturated leaves are carefully dried, locking in the superior range of phytonutrients from all the tonic herbs. The result is a super-potent herbal formulation. This proprietary process ensures that our Spring Dragon Longevity Tea (SDLT) is 5 to 10 times stronger than other herbal teas that are just blends of chopped herbs.

With six premier tonic herbs, this tea yields one of the most broad spectrum health promoting tonic brews in the world.*


SIP HerbsSchizandra Fruit – Called the “quintessence of Chinese herbs,” Schizandra is a delicious, exotic tonic fruit traditionally used to tonify all the systems of the body, nourish and moisturize the skin, and sharpen the mind.

Goji Berries – Known in Asia as a premier “longevity and anti-aging herb,” this delicious tonic fruit is a true superfood, exhibiting antioxidant activity. It is famous for enhancing strength, vision and beauty. Goji features immune system-supporting polysaccharides.

Astragalus Root – One of the most important herbs in all of herbalism, Astragalus is highly regarded for its effects in helping to support a healthy immune system. It is also a potent energy tonic and blood tonic.

Eleuthero Root – Also known as “Siberian Ginseng,” Eleuthero is famous for its ability to enhance physical and mental endurance, to help us handle stress more efficiently and as a gentle mood elevator. Eleuthero, like ginseng and Gynostemma, is rich in saponins. It is a superb adaptogenic herb.

Luo Han Guo Fruit – Also known as Monk Fruit. This delicious, exotic fruit has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese traditional to moisten the lungs and the skin, soothe the throat and generate fluids. It contains mogroside, a potent glucoside that helps to support a healthy immune system.

The ultimate greatness of Spring Dragon Longevity Tea™ (SDLT) lies in its broad spectrum ADAPTOGENIC (stress modulating) characteristic. Adaptogenic herbs help maintain the efficiency of the adrenal, metabolic (pancreatic and cellular), neurological, immunologic, respiratory, and other endocrine-hormonal systems. Continued consumption of SDLT may strengthen the adaptive capacity of the person at every level of their life.*

SDLTTogether, the total ginsenosides in SDLT have a multitude of modulating actions. No doubt, some saponins have very a broad range of actions in the body or have potent actions on specific functions. These saponins have become well known. But single-saponin action is not the full story. The more ginsenoside-like saponins, the more influence an herb will have on the human body and mind. And this is much more powerful for a combination of adaptogenic herbs that includes many more ginsenoside-like saponins.

The bottom-line secret of these ginsenoside-like saponins is that they have double-direction activity. That means that for every saponin that stimulates a function, there are saponins that counteract that function in such a way as to maintain healthy functional balance in the body. These saponin pairings adjust physical and mental responses to maintain an appropriate balance of function in response to stress and for long term health. All these saponin containing herbs are therefore referred to as “adaptogens,” which means they are “modulators” or “regulators.” They are capable of nudging the body in both directions.

Thus, adaptogens are typically capable of promoting vitality and at the same time promoting relaxation, even supporting deep sleep. All together, they have the ability to profoundly boost the immune functions necessary for the response to pathogens. But they also modulate functions that may otherwise result in excessive responses that could result in autoimmune responses. The full saponin complex balances the immune system, modulates immune responses, which provide appropriate adaptive capacity to the entire immune system.

The immune system is not the end of this double-direction activity, it is just one example. The double-direction action of a powerful adaptogen, or even better a combination of adaptogens, can influence every human system, from the neurological system to the digestive system to the metabolic system to the skeletal system, and so on. They strengthen by modulation, by providing life energy and simultaneously they promote balance in virtually every system of the body. Balance is life. In biology, this is called homeorhesis, which is the maintenance of dynamic homeostasis under stress. That is why many scholars agree that adaptogens are the most important health-promoting and health protecting herbs on earth. How much more so when they are combined, as is the case with SDLT, which is rich in world class double-direction function-balancing adaptogens and literally hundreds of ginsenoside-like saponins, most of which come in double-direction modulating pairs to help us handle all the stresses of life most efficiently and effectively.

How We Source This Product

Dragon Herbs gynostemma is grown near the top of Great Immortal Peak, a remote pristine mountain in Southern China, without the use of any chemicals or modern equipment. It is grown totally on mountain spring water and natural precipitation. Most of the Gynostemma sold in the United States is grown at low altitude as an adjunctive farm product, usually around corn fields. The water in these farms is not nearly as pure as the fresh mountain spring water that feeds the Great Immortal Peak Gynostemma plot. Also, the common low lying fields are fumigated and unnaturally fertilized. Dragon Herbs’ Gynostemma is grown in a completely clean, naturally fertile environment. Most manufacturers leave the stems in the Gynostemma before extracting, resulting in a less potent extract. Dragon Herbs uses hand selected leaves only.

Does your teabag contain epichlorohydrin as some other companies do?

No. Our SDLT teabags are produced using an environmentally friendly unbleached paper.

Can I drink this tea before bed as well as in the morning?

You can drink it in the morning, afternoon or night without sleep disturbance. There is no caffeine in Spring Dragon Longevity Tea.

Is this a powder or in bags?? It seems to say both. So is this saying we get 3 cups per bag?

The tea is not a powder in a bag. It is Gynostemma herbal tea leaves, cut to "tea cut" size, which is infused with the concentrated extracts of five other major tonic herbs. You can get 2 cups per bag, but if you make each cup very strong, you may find that 2 cups are strong and the third is a bit weaker.

Would love to know if this tea has been grown without pesticides even though it's not labeled as organic?

There are no pesticides used to grown the Gynostemma or any of the herbs included in this formulation.
