The Moringa or murungai keerai tea is an excellent energy & refreshing drink. The tea is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. Dried Moringa Leaves infused in hot water gives this refreshing Moringa Tea. Back in India we had a drumstick tree at home and we were able to drink whenever we wanted. Being in apartments the luxury of having your own Moringa tree is ruled out for many of us. Hence I generally dry them in the sun when I go to India and store them until my next visit or a maximum of 1 year. However, when I run out of stock I buy them in Little India and microwave them to get the dried leave effect. I have provided the steps for microwave method.

  • In microwave method the leaves will be very hot, allow it to cool down before packing in the air tight container.
  • If you prefer to dry under the sun make sure its not kept in a windy place as the leaves would fly away.
  • I felt that there is no difference in the taste for both the methods.
