Get off to a healthy start every morning with a cup of malunggay tea.
To make your own tea leaves at home, you will need freshly harvested malunggay that has been cleaned. Lay them out on a clean sheet of paper for 2-3 days to dry.
Once dried, remove the leaves from the stems. Shake out the leaves over a fine mesh sieve or sifter to get rid of extra stem pieces or other debris from the leaves.
Carefully dry roast the leaves over low heat in a pan, turning frequently to avoid burning. Store the tea in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Steep tea leaves in hot water for 1-3 minutes, then strain. You can also use a tea ball or a French press if you have these.
