Malunggay Tea Recipe for the Sick
Spread the love

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

Malunggay tea ingredients


  1. Boil the Malunggay leaves for 10 minutes and strain.
  2. Add the other ingredients aside from the tea and mix well.
  3. While waiting for the mixture to cool down, put the tea bag and remove when the flavors of the tea mixed with the water.
  4. 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.
