The purpose of this entry is to show the difference in the appearance of  Aquilaria and Camellia Sinesis leaves. This is NOT an entry to show which one is better as each leaf has its own benefit

  

Aquilaria

Camellia Sinensis

Nature leaves

Steamed leave

 

Both are elliptical leaf but

Camellia Sinensis has saw-toothed appearance

 Aquilaria leaves when torn, it will show mini fibre or hair between the torn part. To illustrate our point, please see the below images:
