Moringa Tea

5 from 3 votes

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.

  • If you are going to use the sunlight method then spread them in a clean white cloth.
  • The microwave method would retain the green color and the sunlight method will not retain the green color. However it is good to do the sunlight 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.
How long does it take for moringa to start working?
It all depends on your health goals and the amount you take. For instance, if you want to lose weight, moringa leaf extract will portray its benefits once you start using it continuously.
For instance, if you’re taking it to lower your blood pressure, you should also pay attention to the nutrition and diet balance to get the best results. Make sure to consume it as recommended to see its full potential.

I love to cook the most authentic way. Most of my recipes are cooked either in claypot or kalchatti / soapstone. They are extremely beneficial as they retain the nutrients. Before cooking a recipe in these vessels I do in-depth research and make sure it is doable in any modular kitchen.
