I have been a lover of all things “tea” for many years. Sweet tea, hot tea, green tea; I am not significantly loyal to any one brand or variety but I like a good tea. I have a caffeine pick me up in the morning, English breakfast around noon and often end my day with a chamomile or relaxation variety. For this review, Organic India sent me a variety of their Moringa & Tulsi tea products to try.
Moringa is a complety new plant to me. I often buy loose leaf green tea from India but I had never heard of the Moringa plant prior to this review. According to the information provided, Moringa has been around for thousands of years and is considered one of the most complete nutrient-dense plants on Earth.
I have to admit that I have been much more into the loose leaf powder than the capsules. There is a small bitter taste to the loose leaf but hardly noticeable in most smoothies or yogurts. I thought I would try to hide some in the baby’s meals but he is fairly obstinate when it comes to eating mushy things. I was able to sneak it in to some yogurt parfaits for the older kids and they didn’t seem to notice. As for me, I often buy pre-made organic smoothies and I could just add in the recommended .5 tsp for one serving. I desperately need the B12 and the Moringa offers a large dose of that very important nutrient along with 90 others.
I am horrible at taking capsules and even though I know I needed to be consistent for this review, I didn’t do a very good job. However, when I did use the capsules, I could feel a difference in my overall energy. I am going to commit to trying to use them in conjunction with the remaining loose leaf powder as I start running again and will post an update on Facebook.
I have really enjoyed the Tulsi Teas. The Moringa tea has an initial taste that took me a few tries before I really enjoyed it. I also found adding a drop of real honey from the local apiary to the tea help take the bite off the bitterness. I kept a box at work and would sip it slowly for the mornings. I wouldn’t say the Cinnamon flavor was my favorite but the others were great.
Overall, I feel good about adding such a fantastic product to our home. Organic, healthy and globally sustainable, what more could you want?
