Neem Tea is a misnomer as it really is an infusion of Neem Leaves.

Neem ‘tea’ has been drunk in India for several centuries for its range of benefits. Utilized extensively in Ayurvedic medicine, neem is a tree native to India and Burma in the mahogany family Meliaceae. The neem tree’s flowers, seeds, bark, fruits, and roots are all used for medicinal purposes.

Yet, Neem ayurvedic ‘tea’ is best made using dried or fresh neem leaves.

The neem tree is sometimes referred to as the “Village Pharmacy” because of its numerous healthful properties.

Neem contains carotene, vitamin C, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, sodium, thiamine, and several other chemical compounds. Neem ‘tea’ is believed to stimulate the immune system, improve liver function, promote circulation, digestive, and respiratory health, and detoxify the blood. It also helps treat skin problems.
Neem leaves can be used for brewing Neem ‘tea’ and also for skin problems. Neem leaves can be made into a poultice. Neem leaves paste makes a very effective face mask.

Method:

  • Add a dessertspoonful of dried Neem leaves to a cupful of freshly boiled water
  • Simmer for approx. 5 minutes
  • Stand for a further 5 minutes and then strain. Do not re-use the leaves
  • Drink the brew hot or cold
  • Neem is naturally quite bitter so, if needed, sweeten the ‘tea’ with honey or stevia
