MORINGA MAGIC TREE HERBAL TEA
The legendary Moringa tree originated in the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range. It has long been used in Indian medicine and is known as the 'magic tree'. These "magic leaves" taste fresh and mildly spicy with a pleasant sweet note, not dissimilar to Japanese green tea, Gyokuro. We buy from small plantations that produce top qualities that are harvested after the plant is more than 3 years old. The result can be seen in the crop's bright green leaves as well as its unique taste. We have decided on a quality from Sri Lanka owing to the high demand and only restricted availability from sustainable cultivation. The plantations here meet the bioorganic standard DE-KO-003. Moringa is full of nutrients, including 10% protein content, vitamins B6, C, B2, A, magnesium and iron. It also contains quercetin, a compound linked to lowering of blood pressure and chlorogenic acid, which is thought to help stabilise blood sugar. Its many alleged health properties are currently undergoing clinical trials. Meanwhile, it remains a delicious, caffeine-free alternative to green tea, particularly suited for bedtime drinking.
