Known in Egypt as Al-Ban (love tree), Moringa is also known in some parts of the world as the miracle tree. We aren't surprised, because this leafy plant is definitely something of a natural miracle. How so? Amazingly, just one gram of this delicate leaf is said to contain:
2 times the protein of yogurt
4 times the Vitamin A of carrots
3 times the potassium of a banana
4 times the calcium of milk
7 times the Vitamin C of oranges
25 times the iron of spinach
Moringa ranks as one of the most nutrient-dense plants on planet Earth. Thought to have been discovered millennia ago by early humans who saw it being eaten by animals, moringa has been believed to have healing and restorative properties since well before recorded time. Rich in antioxidants, and prized by natural health practitioners for its detoxifying and cleansing effects, the plant is thought to be beneficial for a host of ailments including cancer, allergies, inflammation, viruses and memory loss.

IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF
HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml into the pot. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about.)
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon or 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving into the pot. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the leaves or removing the tea bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about!)
FOOD SAFETY ADVISORY: We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea.
ANTIOXIDANT BENEFIT: For a greater antioxidant benefit brew longer and use more tea.
