The following excerpt taken from
TRIPLE LEAF TEA--Ancient Chinese Medicinal Teas
What is the function of the Loquat Leaf and Malva Verticellata in the diet teas?
Peter Holmes in THE JADE REMEDIES states that loquat leaf is a gastric sedative and antiemetic, and a respiratory sedative, antitussive and expectorant. In traditional Chinese medicine terms, Holmes writes that it works on the respiratory and digestive systems, and the lung and stomach channels. According to THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HERBS by Demi Brown, loquat leaf is "a bitter, expectorant herb that controls coughing and vomiting; it is effective against bacterial and viral infections...internally for bronchitis, coughs with feverish colds, nausea, vomiting, hiccups, and persistent burping."
