Moringa tea is not really a tea in the strict sense of the word. It is rather a herbal tea or tisane since it doesn’t contain tea leaves. This means Moringa tea is caffeine free!
Our Moringa tea bags are filled with 100% pure, USDA Certified organic, dried Moringa oleifera leaves. The natural flavor contains only pure crushed Moringa leaves in each tea bag, while the pomegranate flavor contains the same crushed Moringa leaves as the natural flavor plus pomegranate juice extract. We absolutely love it and highly recommend it!
Many people/research report Moringa tea provides:
- An energy boost without the caffeine
- An increase in mental energy and clarity
- Significant (~20%) reduction in fasting and 2 hour blood sugar levels (when Moringa tea is taken before eating)
- High antioxidant concentrations for cellular protection against free radicals
- A rare source of one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered: EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) which is also found in Green tea. EGCG has been shown in many laboratory studies to inhibit an enzyme required for cancer cell growth and also to kill cancer cells with no ill effect on healthy cells.
Dr. Oz Shares How He Loves Moringa Tea!
Dr. Oz calls Moringa olerifera an energy blaster! He goes on to say:
What I personally love – drink Moringa as tea! It comes in tea bags, you steep them, easy to do twice a day… Pop in a tea bag when you are feeling a little bit down and the beautiful part about this is you don’t get the downer from caffeine.
If you have ever wondered how to make Moringa tea, we have two options for you below:
To cold brew simply pour 6-8 oz of cold water over the tea bag and let it steep for at least 2 hours in the fridge. Leaving the tea in the fridge overnight to brew is preferable. When you remove the tea form the fridge be sure to stir and then squeeze the tea back when removing.
To hot brew pour 6-8 oz of hot (~170 deg. F) water over the tea bag. Before water starts to boil, steam starts coming off the water. This is the perfect time to pour hot water over tea bag and let it steep for 3-5 minutes. Again, be sure to squeeze the tea bag when removing to extract as many nutrients as possible.
Flavoring: Unless you are a Moringa tea purist, consider adding a little honey and or lemon or ginger root to the natural tea for best results. The pomegranate flavor is excellent without any extras.
There is no recommended daily usage for Moringa tea. In fact, unlike green tea, it has no caffeine and therefore can be a powerful source of EGCG taken many times a day, at any time of the day, all without getting caffeine jitters!
Consider taking a cup or two of Moringa tea to replace your morning coffee. If you are trying to better control blood sugar drink a cup of Moringa tea before each meal.
Drink throughout the day, as often as you like, knowing each cup is feeding your body powerful antioxidants and other nutrients!
