Noni Leaf Tea

Noni Leaf

Noni grows throughout the South Pacific and Caribbean islands.  For centuries the natives used the leaves of the noni plant for medicinal purposes.  Today the fruit and its juice are more commonly known, though I can’t understand why that stinky stuff would appeal to anyone.  The leaves, however, are pleasantly fragrant when dried and steeped for an herbal tea.  It really tastes like another green tea.  Noni Leaf Tea is naturally caffeine-free and to quote :

Studies have shown the leaf to be the most nutrient-rich part of the plant, containing health promoting nutrients including phyto-chemicals, antioxidants and bio-flavonoids. Rich in a number of vitamins and minerals – phosphorus, iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin K1, niacin and more. Noni leaf is rich in plant sterols, protein, glycosides, and anthraquinones.

The leaf has many benefits when taken regularly – will protect us from toxins and pollutants, encourages the body to detox, helps prevent the premature onset of age-related diseases, boosts our immune defences, reduces our risk of developing cancer, aids in better digestion and assimilation, helps to cleanse our intestinal system in a very mild way, reduces inflammation and eases pain, has mild anti-bacterial properties, and helps to maintain normal blood sugar levels.”

Daily use not recommended for people with kidney or liver disease.  Do not take if pregnant or nursing.

To make Noni Leaf Tea place 1 bag in two cups of boiling water and let steep for 3-5minutes.  A little stevia, agave nectar, or cold-pressed honey can be added only if necessary.   To make iced tea, place 2 bags of Noni Leaf Tea in 1 quart (32 ounces) of hot water and let steep over night.  Add a slice of lemon to make it more aromatic.

    Are the leaves irradiated or pasteurized?

  2. No…they are washed in soapy water then dried in a dehydrator.

    How can I get it in Nigeria?
    I’d like to be a distributor in Nigeria.

    I am interested in purchasing Noni tea in bulk form not in bags. Also at what temperature do you dehydrate your tea? Where does your Noni come from, i.e. country and state or . . .

  5. Mike, Finally a response. Noni leaves come from my own backyard bush. I dehydrate in a solar dehydrator so it only takes a few hours in direct sun. Dried leaves are crushed in a new paper bag and veins are removed. What quantity of bulk tea do you want?

  6. Stella, I recommend you purchase noni seeds and grow your own. Nigeria should be tropical enough to support noni growth.
