Although all parts of Moringa oleifera, including the roots, wood, bark, leaves and seeds have traditional uses, we use only dried and ground Moringa leaves in our products
How is ME Moringa grown, cleaned, dried and packaged?
Our Moringa is grown using the best organic farming methods, without the use of pesticides and herbicides. Plants grown without the use of chemicals are healthier, more potent, and their nutrients (and no toxic chemicals) are absorbed more efficiently by the body.
ME Moringa leaves are gently and carefully harvested and cleaned by hand, so as not to damage the leaves and diminish the nutritional quality. Similar care is used in the drying process which is done at under 40 degrees Celsius to ensure the preservation of the natural vitamins, phytocompounds and enzymes (raw food quality). The dried leaves are then finely grounded, also at low temperatures.
ME Moringa leaf products are packaged in light, air and moisture impervious, food grade packaging which prevents damage that can be caused by light, air and moisture. At ME, good hygiene throughout the entire production and packaging process is an important cornerstone of our philosophy. ME is certified ISO 22000.
Moringa Tea Blends
How long should I steep my ME tea?
All ME teas are labelled with the optimal water temperature and steeping time. You can, of course, steep your ME teas for more or less time, depending on your taste preference. If the tea tastes bitter to you, try steeping your next cup or kettle for a bit less time, or slightly reduce the amount of tea used. To increase flavor, try steeping your tea for a minute or so longer, or simply use a bit more tea.
How does the quality of water used affect the taste of ME teas?
Regardless of which water you use to make your tea, the following important parameters apply:
1) the best is just fresh from the tap, if possible. Water which has been in the tea kettle overnight or has been boile bland or flat.
2) Good tasting water is fresh, oxygenated, and full of natural minerals. If you live in an area which has "hard" tap water (especially high mineral or lime content), your tea may have a "furry" taste, and a film may develop can hinder the developing tea flavors. In areas with especially hard water, we recommend using either a water filter or bottled water with a low mineral content.
Mineral water is generally unsuitable for making tea, because of its high mineral content. A few mineral waters have a very low mineral content making them okay to use for tea. Such bottled waters are often labelled "low mineral" and/or "light".
