THE STORY OF MINDFUL MORINGA

The Moringa tree (Latin: Morinaga oleifera), native to Northern India, has been revered by traditional health practitioners for millennia - in particular as a source of brain-enriching nutrients. In fact, in developing countries where food sources may be scarce, Moringa supplements play a role as an important source of essential proteins, iron, riboflavin and more.

An incredibly fast growing tree, Moringa gets its name from the Tamil word murungai meaning, 'twisted pod', in reference to the elongated shape of its fruit. Additional unique characteristics of the tree have spawned a number colloquial names throughout the years: drumstick tree (thanks to the shape of its seed pods), horseradish tree (owing to the horseradish like flavor of its roots), ben oil tree (because of the oil that can be extracted from its seeds, and Miracle tree (because of its ability to grow just about anywhere).

As the key ingredient in this robust and restorative blend, Moringa, along with a plethora of other herbs, fruits and flowers, aids in the delivery of a daily dose of Vitamin A, C and E, along with life-affirming antioxidants and polyphenols. To fill out the palate, we've also added 100% all natural citrus flavoring for high sippability. The perfect tea to enjoy on those days when your brain needs a boost. Enjoy.


BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a rolling boil (85 degrees Celcius) for 3-7 minutes.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes.  Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher.  Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon 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.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves.  Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.

NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves.  Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion.  Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
