Star, the product we generally think of as tea, as well as green tea, are made from leaves of Camellia sinensis. Probably there are chemicals in that plant that cause your reaction to tea. One likely group of candidates are tannins. Do you have the same type reaction from red wine?

Herbal teas are made from a wide variety of things, e.g. Chamomile tea made from Chamomile flowers, and are generally considered alternatives to Camellia sinensis leaves. Depending on the plant, the tea may or may not contain a significant level of tannins.

Moringa leaves do contain tannins, but hopefully not enough to cause you a problem.


Moringa seed don't need anything special. Place them in moist dirt and within a few days you have a Moringa plant. I am assuming the apparently non-viable seed I have are not decomposing as a result of their inherent antimicrobial properties.
