The 15 Best Ingredients To Add To Moringa Tea

Also known as the “miracle tree,” Moringa is a rich source of minerals and vitamins.

It is also widely regarded as a superfood due to the many scientifically-proven health benefits it provides.

However, not everyone enjoys the taste of Moringa tea, and some people prefer to use Moringa with other ingredients rather than drink it on its own.

In this list, we’ll go over 15 of the best ingredients that you can add to your Moringa tea.

How To Make Moringa Tea Taste Better:
15 Different Ingredients

We get it.

Because of its strong flavor, Moringa is best taken in the form of a fruity juice rather than as a standalone supplement.

If you want to enjoy your moringa tea, you’ll need to combine it with something with a more robust flavor to overshadow or hide its natural “earthy” taste.   

So, if you’re looking for other ingredients that you can add to make your moringa tea or juice taste a whole lot better, we’ve got you covered! 

Here are our 15 favorite things you can add to your moringa tea. 


Adding honey to your hot cup of moringa tea is a simple way to enhance its flavor.

Honey adds a nice touch of sweetness and a distinctive flavor to a freshly prepared tea blend, which is why this ingredient is at the top of our list.

Ginger is a well-known root and a superfood.

The fresh root’s nearly fruity spice works wonders in various recipes, from smoothies to teas.

Add ginger to some of your favorite moringa recipes.

The results will amaze you!!


The combination of cocoa, cacao, and chocolate is hard to resist, and chocolate makes everything taste better, even moringa tea.

Adding a little Cocoa to your smoothie or tea recipe will make it even more delicious!

Spirulina is a member of the blue-green algae family.

It has similar health benefits to Moringa – but a natural flavor that is as strong as, if not stronger than, Moringa.

When you make moringa tea with a splash of spirulina, it can be a fantastic recipe, filled with nutrition and, of course, a distinctive taste. 

Be advised this is an “acquired” taste. (We like it, though)

Green Tea 

Moringa is packed with antioxidants. And whether you use fresh or dried leaves, moringa leaf extract will make an excellent addition to any green tea brew.

Mixing Moringa and green tea will result in a steaming cup of tea filled with a whole lot of nutrients.

Dandelions are a tasty and healthy addition to any diet, and including this ingredient in your moringa tea is great for one’s health.

Dandelions are great on their own and can be added to your moringa tea and smoothies.

Peanut Butter

Now, you can’t just mix some peanut butter with a teaspoon of Moringa and be good to go.

You’ll need an additional ingredient to combine the two.

In this case, a banana is an excellent choice; a recipe made of bananas, peanut butter, and Moringa is a delicious way to highlight the nutty, earthy flavor of both the nuts and moringa.

Bananas are an excellent base for any drink.

These are a perfect addition to your moringa tea recipe since it adds a savory taste and texture to the mix.

You can also make a delicious smoothie by combining Moringa with some frozen banana and any other ingredient of your choice.


We love blueberries because they are full of healthy antioxidants and tasty, beautiful, and nutritious in every way.

Due to the blueberries’ flavor intensity, adding some blueberries will not significantly alter the flavor and will give it a unique taste.


Coconut Milk 

When coconut is used in a recipe, you can taste its unique flavor immediately.

Although adding some coconut to your moringa tea may seem odd, we’ve found that it complements Moringa nicely, creating a tropical-like flavor.  

Lemon Juice

Citrus is another fantastic option.

However, due to its potency, we do not advise mixing moringa powder with lemon juice and consuming it.

Try adding some moringa to your next glass of lemonade, or incorporate it into your next glass of cucumber-lemon water.

The citrus flavor dramatically enhances the taste and provides additional health benefits.

Apple juice 

Mixing Moringa with apple juice is another popular option.

Apple is a reasonably neutral juice that serves as the foundation for many different juices, so its flavor won’t compete with the Moringa.

It’s a fruity-tasting natural sweetener that complements Moringa’s flavor wonderfully. 

Be careful with the amount of sugar apple juice has! Look for sugar-free options. 

White grape juice  

Since moringa leaves are packed with essential vitamins, get some and boil them in water, then mix the extracted tea with some white grape juice.

White grape juice is a lovely alternative to apple juice because it is sweeter than regular grape juice.

Try mixing white grape juice with moringa tea for a healthy and energizing breakfast beverage.

Pear juice 

Due to its mild taste, pear juice is frequently used as a base ingredient in more complex fruit juice blends.

Pear juice can be used as a substitute for refined sugar; it has a similar sweetness to sugar water but is a much healthier choice.

Adding Moringa won’t take away the taste, but it will add sweetness and vibrancy to your pear juice and your moringa tea. This works both ways. 

Orange Juice

With its high vitamin C content, pleasant taste, and pulpy texture, orange juice is an excellent option for a morning beverage.

If you add Moringa to a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice, you won’t be able to tell the difference.

Taking moringa tea every morning already offers many benefits, and adding orange juice only makes it better!

The Health Benefits of Moringa Tea

The moringa tree is an excellent source of several essential vitamins and minerals. The leaves contain seven times as much potassium as bananas and seven times as much vitamin C as oranges. It also has healing and muscle-building nutrients like protein, calcium, iron, and amino acids.  

Dried moringa leaves are also rich in antioxidants, which can prevent cell damage, and are also suitable for the immune system.

We’ve done the research, and many of these antioxidants have been shown to reduce body fat, sugar levels, and blood pressure.
