I was excited to find out here that there's a tea made of malunggay. I am breastfeeding so I want to choose something that can help with my milk supply so I wanted to give this a try. The thing I liked was it has bigger tea bags. But I am more disappointed. I followed the direction and used warm/hot water and soaked it. But unlike other teas, it was nearly colorless and when I tasted it, kulang na kulang sa lasa. I mean tea is usually expected to be somewhat bitter or has rich taste but this one is tasteless . The content ( dried Malunggay roots and leaves) seemed not to be dissolved at all even though soaked in hot water for 20 minutes. Tea bags usually sink when soaked in hot water or even cold water but not this one. Maybe that's why this tea is tasteless.about 2 months ago
