Meet Moringa - The Fashionable New Superfood
As the love for our healthy Japanese Matcha Green Tea Powder continues to grow, we have added a new superfood blend to our range over 100 speciality teas.
The name of this new tea is Zingy Moringa Dawn and its key component is dried leaves from the popular Moringa tree.
In recent years, the interest in the Moringa plant has grown in the Western health community and various scientific research has been carried out to discover the true health benefits of Moringa.
Moringa Oleifera is a tree native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas in northwest India. The tree also grows in Pakistan, Nepal and other countries in this area of the world. Because of its distinctive shape, the Moringa tree is also referred to as ‘Horseradish Tree’ or ‘Drumstick Tree’.
Moringa has traditional been consumed as a medicinal food in India, Africa and other countries in which the tree grows.
Moringa is proven to be highly nutritious, containing significant amounts of vitamins A, B and C. Moringa leaves - the most nutritious part of the tree - are also high in antioxidants which can help to fight off free radicals in your blood and thereby, regular consumption of Moringa can potentially prevent cell damage and inflammation.
Moringa is also said to be rich in minerals, amino acids, calcium and iron.
Moringa leaves can be consumed in several different ways - for example, you can enjoy the health benefits of Moringa as a tea infusion.
Dried Moringa leaves impart a mild and very pleasant flavour. Our Zingy Moringa Dawn blend also includes rose hip peel, lemon balm leaves, sencha green tea, raspberry leaves, cardamom, lemon peel, orange peel and acerola bits.
This mix of healthy, natural ingredients makes for a truly delicious and highly nutritious cup of tea. Each ingredient adds to the flavour complexity and brings with it is own nutrition base. Rose hip, for example, is high in vitamin A and healthy antioxidants.
This blend provides a truly delicious way to enjoy the newest trending superfood.
