(Moringa oleifera) Made from the dried leaves of the Moringa tree, this tisane is delicious and has been consumed for centuries for its health benefits. Moringa leaves are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. The brewed cup has a vegetal, fresh spinach taste that can be enjoyed hot or cold.

In 2012, on a vacation in Florida, Cyndi was fortunate to take a tour of Echo, a 50 acre agriculture research center.  Echo's mission is to help communities and countries solve malnutrition and to end hunger.  At their "farm" in Florida they create different climates and test what plants and planting methods will work best in a variety of eco-climates.  According to their website "We gather solutions from around the world that are solving hunger problems and disseminate them to our active network. These solutions promote sustainable farming techniques, nutritional plants, and appropriate technologies."

One of the most interesting parts of the tour was the Moringa trees they grew there.  Moringa is a highly nutritious plant where all parts have beneficial properties (the leaves, the seeds, flowers, young tender pods, immature seeds, and the roots).  This plant is rapidly becoming a staple in countries that have poor soil and growing climates. 

Reports on the nutritional properties of the Moringa leaves have appeared in many scientific journals over the last thirty years, and research is continuing.
