THE MORINGA TREE – how to make Moringa tea (Part 2)

Many people love to take Moringa tea. This is made from the leaves of the Moringa tree.


  1. Harvest fresh leaves from the tree.
  2. Dry the leaves at room temperature. You should put the leaves in a brown paper bag with holes.
  3. Hang the brown paper bag in a cool dry area of your home.
  4. It should take about 10 – 14 days for the leaves to dry.
  5. When the leaves are dry enough, shred or pulverize the leaves

About 7 Ibs of fresh Moringa leaves will make 1 Ib of Moringa leaf powder.

If you are newly introduced to the tea, just add 1 teaspoon of the powder to hot water. Allow to simmer before drinking the tea.



I mentioned earlier that Moringa tree can grow in normal nutrient rich soils and sub-optimal soils with very little nutrient. The Moringa tree is grown in many parts of the world. The tree grows in

– Tropical

– Sub tropical

– Temperate or

– Equatorial climate

We can thus say the Moringa tree grows well in many climatic conditions.
