Neem Leaves – Dried – for a Brew
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.
