Nanny Moringa Tea | Review

A couple of weeks ago I was sent an email from a lovely little company called Nanny Moringa asking me if I would like some of their tea to try. I was very excited as this was my first product being sent to me to review. 


A little box then arrived in the post, hooray for happy post! Inside was a lovely little package of tea, instructions on how to make the tea and a little leaflet about Nanny Moringa. 

Now unfortunately the last few weeks have passed in a little blur, so I've only just got round to making the tea. (This sounds ridiculous, but I knew I had to make ice, wait for the tea to cool etc. So I didn't want to rush the whole thing).


 Nanny Moringa tea is made using the leaf of the Moringa tree. I was amazed to read that Moringa leaves are a true Superfood, with more vitamin A than carrots and more potassium than bananas.

To make one glass of Moringa Iced Tea you will need the following
Ingredients
1 cup of boiling water
2 Moringa tea bags
1/2 cup of cold water 
4 teaspoons of honey 
4 teaspoons of lemon juice


 Let's go!

Method:
1. Make one strong cup of Moringa tea with 2 teabags and the one cup of boiling water.
2. Remove the tea bags and allow to cool to room temperature, the taste will be slightly stronger if you put the tea straight into the fridge as it locks in the flavour.
3. Add the sugar/honey and lemon juice into the tea, stirring it well and then add half a cup of cold water and leave to chill.
4. Pour the iced tea over ice and garnish with a sprig of mint and lemon slice.



 For some reason I got a little carried away and put in 4 tablespoons of lemon juice, so the lemon flavour came through quite strongly. *Next time I need to pay more attention to the instructions*. I also managed to make 2 glasses of iced tea using these quantities, maybe my cups are slightly large, or perhaps I should have used proper cup
 measurements like they do in America.


Even with my quantity of lemon juice being rather exaggerated I  could still taste a lovely subtle tea flavour.  *Thank goodness, I hadn't ruined it* I garnished my ice tea with just a slice of lemon, as I didn't have any mint to hand. I have to say I'm not a massive drinker of herbal teas, although I'm quite partial to a lemon & ginger, and occasionally a camomile tea. So this is all I can compare it too. In this respect I would say it was a little bit similar camomile tea.

This makes a lovely refreshing drink, perfect for the summer weather we're getting at the moment. I also decided to try it hot, but I have to say I preferred it as an iced tea drink.

I'd like to thank @NannyMoringa for sending me a sample of their tea.
I really enjoyed making it and would recommend it to any herbal tea drinkers to try. Especially knowing all the health benefits that Moringa leaves naturally provide.


Thank you for reading. x
