Malunggay tea packs an amazing amount of Vitamin C and other nutrients. It’s one good and refreshing way to boost your immune system.
Before, I was the type of guy who will just rely on my immune system every time I get a cough and colds. Those were the times when I don’t even care if I’m sick or not.
Now, because of adulting, I care. I always prevent my cough and cold from getting graver.
Though my immune system is still at its highest level, I have to help it by exercising, getting enough sleep, and many more healthier lifestyle. When colds are knocking on my door, I make malunggay tea.
Malunggay or moringa is a native tree to Southeast Asia. It is considered as one of the most nutritious vegetables in the world. With the same serving, it has seven times the Vitamin C of oranges, four times the Vitamin A of carrots, and three times the potassium of a banana. This also promotes good blood circulation for a better immune system.
For this malunggay tea, which can give lots of benefits, I used 1 cup of malunggay leaves. Just in case you can’t find the fresh leaves, you can also use the powdered one (3-4 capsules).
Ingredients for Malunggay Tea:
- 1 cup Malunggay Leaves
- 2 bags Yellow Tea
- Juice from 10 Calamansi (3 lemons)
- 1 cup Honey
- 1 liter and 1 cup Water
- Boil the Malunggay leaves for 10 minutes and strain.
- Add the other ingredients aside from the tea and mix well.
- While waiting for the mixture to cool down, put the tea bag and remove when the flavors of the tea mixed with the water.
- Serve and enjoy.
Note: You can also add thumb-size ginger while boiling the malunggay leaves. Malunggay and ginger tea are not appetizing to children.
