    -----------------------------------

    How to Brew Purple Tea: Rinse 1tsp of leaves with water that has just started simmering, discard the rinse water. This 'wakes up' the leaves and removes small particles that can make it bitter. Then pour over 8oz of 160F water and steep for 2-3 minutes. (Using boiling water will burn the delicate leaves and destroy their health benefits; brewing for too long will result in a very bitter drink. If you want a stronger flavor, use more leaves and steep for the same or slightly less time.)

    ...and for a Pitcher of Iced Tea: Follow the same steps per tea, however triple the quantity of tea used and double the water. Let it steep for at least twenty minutes, possibly overnight. Then put in the fridge, or pour directly over ice. Note that the caffeine and antioxidants tend to disappear after 3-4 hours of brewing, so be careful!

    How do I store my tea? What is the shelf life of herbal teas and moringa?

     Always store tea is a dark and airtight container (light degrades the leaves removing the tasty goodness!). If stored correctly, our teas will retain their taste for up to three years. After that they are still safe to drink, but won't taste of much! If stored in an unsealed container or exposed to light, our teas should be consumed within six months of purchase to get the maximum flavor.

    Powdered Moringa is best consumed within six months even if stored properly to get the maximum flavor and potential health benefits.
