Malunggay Tea for the sick
After our vacation in Pangasinan, I got colds and a dry cough. I just ignored it for 1 week, but when I can’t stand my barking and unable to breath easily, I consulted my closed friend that is a doctor about my sickness. He said that it’s viral and all I have to do is to strengthen my immune system along with some medications he recommended.
He added that I should take lots of Vitamin C and named some of the natural products that can give me lots of Vitamin C. He said that Malunggay(Moringa), green tea and honey can supply me the Vitamin C I needed. So, I came up with the tea that combines all those raw materials and it actually tasted good.
This Malunggay tea actually loosens my cough, as of now on my cough is on its last stage and I don’t have colds anymore. Well, this tea doesn’t prove anything scientific, but this really soothes my throat and relieves my chest pain for just a day of drinking.
Here are the ingredients:
- 3 bundles of malunggay – remove the leaves
- 2 yellow tea bags (you can also use green tea)
- Juice from 10 pieces of Calamansi
- 1 cup honey
- 1 liter and 1 cup of water
- 1. Boil the malunggay leaves in the water for 10 minutes and strain.
- 2. While waiting for the tea to cool down. Put the tea bag and honey and let it stand.
- 3. Add Calmansi juice and enjoy.
I actually enjoyed the tea as I am a huge fan of tea and natural refreshments. My niece didn’t know that it has malunggay despite that I tasted the malunggay flavor (Imagine a little tinola-like after taste). Therefor, I can say that this can trick the kids.
Very Big Note: This only soothes my feeling, but I am not saying that this can really cure a colds. Colds are symptoms of a sickness and you should consult a doctor if your colds is already long and already stopping you from doing your works.
