So, give this recipe a try.
1 – 2 cups filtered water
1 Tbsp Moringa powder (1/2 cup fresh Moringa Leaves)
3 Tbsps Honey
1 tsp lemon balm tea leaves (dried)
A small handful of peppermint leaves (about 8 to 10 leaves)
- Bring water to a boil.
- Add peppermint leaves and lemon balm tea leaves and let steep on low heat for the for 5 minutes.
- Turn OFF heat source and add Moringa Powder. Note: If using fresh Moringa leaves, wash and boil with the peppermint and lemon balm leaves and let all steep together for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Let Moringa powder steep with the other herbs for 10 minutes.
- Strain out the tea leaves using a fine cloth or fine mesh strainer. You can also transfer this tea to a coffee french press and strain out the leaves and settled Moringa powder. We find that the cheesecloth method works very well, but for simplicity sake and for the sake of saving time, using a french press may be the best way to go, but you should expect some silt like residue from the Moringa powder, but nothing too overbearing.
- Once cooled to desired drinking temperature, add in up to 3 Tbsp honey (adjust sweetness to your liking).
- Enjoy warm with your favorite breakfast or meal.
