About Us

Our Origin

We're the best agriculture & organic firm

From the success of Organic Lemon Myrtle Plantation Sdn Bhd, its founders founded Sifu Tani Sdn. Bhd. on October 2011 with the vision to be the catalyst in breeding lemon myrtle plantations and to cater to the growing demand of the global market for this nature’s miracle. The capital raised will support the development of the 120 acres of land in Sungai Tengi, Hulu Selangor, Selangor with the planting of Lemon Myrtle, the processing factory and mill (pharmaceutical grade), harvesting equipment, and workforce support to ensure the vision of being the leading producer, operator, and processor.

Backhousia citriodora (common names lemon myrtle, lemon scented myrtle, lemon scented ironwood) is a flowering plant in the family Myrtaceae, genus Backhousia. It is endemic to subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland, Australia, with a natural distribution from Mackay to Brisbane. Other common names are sweet verbena tree, sweet verbena myrtle, (lemon-scented verbena is another species), and lemon-scented backhousia.

The common name reflects the strong lemon smell of crushed leaves. "Lemon scented myrtle" was the primary common name until the shortened trade name, "lemon myrtle", was created by the native foods industry to market the leaf for culinary use. Lemon myrtle is now the more common name for the plant and its products.
