From Red Leaf Tea

We have done and continue to do our best in bringing you quality tea products that are natural and healthy. Well, we have done it again! We have taken our highest quality Green Tea, Matcha, and combined it none other than the super fruit known as Noni. Now, you may have heard of Noni before and even tried it from a few different companies only to be left disappointed and feeling ripped off. You do not have to feel that way anymore! You see, we searched and searched the world over to find only the best Noni product to add to our fabulous Matcha Tea.

If you have never heard of Noni, open your ears wide and try to take this all in! The Noni fruit is, like Acai, a super fruit. Noni is found in India, Barbados, Malaysia and Hawaii. Our 100% pure and raw Noni comes from Hawaii. This is not just any Noni, mind you. This is the highest quality Noni that has been freeze-dried to maintain all its integrity. It is 100% raw, pure and organic. After freeze-drying, our Noni is crushed into a fine powder just like our Matcha Green Tea. And just like our Matcha, our Noni powder has all the nutrients and health benefits as though it had never even been removed from its original source. We know it is really amazing and we will tell you why. Our organic Noni powder has so many health benefits it will blow your mind. Not only is Noni a valuable source of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, our 100% pure and raw Noni powder has:

Powerful antioxidants that help support and maintain a healthy immune system T-cell producing qualities that are essential for supporting proper health The ability to help support cellular tissue growth Tumor growth prevention properties Capability to strengthen the digestive system The ability to increase energy and vitality All 9 essential amino acids Capability to help fight infections and cancers The ability to aid in the treatment of lupus and diabetes Capability to fight athlete’s foot The ability to provide relief from flu symptoms

With more benefits to numerous to mention, it is no wonder that we have added such a powerful fruit to our equally powerful Matcha Green Tea. Of course, you cannot let all the healthful qualities of our Noni powder trump the health benefits of our Matcha Tea.

Our wonderful Matcha Tea has qualities like helping improve heart health, detoxifying blood and fighting cancer as well as helping with calorie burn. Together, our Noni and Matcha are lethal combination against bad health and fatigue! Our Noni Matcha is amazing, tastes great and helps keep you healthy throughout the year.

You will not find a healthier tea anywhere than right here and that healthy tea is our very own Noni Matcha.

This was a real surprise!
http://steepster.com/teas/red-leaf-tea/19600-noni-matcha?post=132401
Of all the far flung fruits to flavor a tea with, noni was the farthest from what I’d have expected. My grandfather was Hawaiian and planted the idea of noni in my head a long time ago. He learned to stop doing this as it seemed to make his continent bound family feel deprived of unique experiences. But the sketch (he was an artist) he made of it stuck in my mind. After a depressing lack of information in the 1998 Encyclopedia, I forgot about noni fruit, another unverifiable detail of the technicolor dreamland that my grandfather left behind.

 
Twelve years later, noni popped up in some articles about super fruits and diabetes but not in stores. Not even the giant all-exotic-foods-and-animals-imaginable foodie mecca known as Jungle Jim’s in Ohio. (It was a year ago when I went; perhaps they have noni juice now?) The scientific name is Morinda citrifolia, noni is part of the coffee family and has some more colorful common names such as pace, apatot, dog dumpling, great morinda, Indian mulberry, cheese fruit, and apatot.

Noni fruit has an entire user’s manual full of health benefits. While I remember a very humorous conversation about noni’s use in bowel regularity (grandpa humor…“better than prunes!” I believe he claimed…)I did not know how extensive the health benefits were.
Noni fruit is high in the basic food panel nutrients like vitamins C and A, potassium, niacin, a smidgen of sodium, and is overall similar to the nutrition data of an orange. It contains all nine essenscial amino acids, a very rare quality, although I would imagine it very expensive as a significant protein source.
Among its purported benefits are treatment of diabetes and lupus, quite a contradictory characteristic for a fruit, treatment of athlete’s foot and assistance in fighting infection and cancer. Noni fruit promotes T-cell growth and metabolism. I’m not sure, but I would imagine topical application is needed for treating athlete’s foot an possibly the claims for treating hair loss, but hair loss could be related to vitamin deficiency.

Red Leaf’s Noni Matcha is 100% raw and freeze dried to preserve as much of the nutrients and properties of the fresh fruit as possible. I’m not as gun-ho about raw foods as some health enthusiasts I’ve known, but after an unsuccessful attempt to grow dragonfruit, I physically cringe when rare and special foods are processed in a way that makes them as nutritious as canned green beans. Waste not, want.

Noni fruit has a strong odor when it’s growing and the only other tea including it is a tisane with the odorless leaves from Chi of Tea, to my knowledge. This is why some call it cheese fruit or even vomit fruit, and equate its smell to durian fruit! I think papaws have a similar mixed reception, and I love those.

All this myth and medicine packed into one fruit, I had to order some Noni matcha, if only to share some with grandpa’s memory.

After arguing with the post office over whether or not my street exists (property lines have been redrawn here thrice this year), the mysterious matcha arrived. I had an old Fossil watch tin to sift it into and opened the bag.
Wham! The smell hit me in a wall of floral aroma. The smell is amazing and complex. Notes of jasmine, strawberry, rose, passion flower. I couldn’t even imagine how this could be derived from something called cheese fruit! Then again, pulp and rind most likely have distinct smells, just like orange peel and pulp.
Just before I boiled water I realized that I only have one chasen right now; using it for such a pungent matcha would leave a strange and gradually odoriferous taste in any more chawan of matcha I would prepare. Possibly even in the shino-yaki chawan I’ve been using for everyday use.
My solution was a miso bowl and the spiral wire whisk from Ikea that I swear was invented to be a cat toy and accidentally transferred to the cooking department. After trying it once out of curiosity on culinary grade matcha, it frothed as well as preparation with a chasen, but the froth disappeared instantly. I haven’t made matcha to drink with it before and I must admit I was trying not to laugh at what I was watching. A loud green slurp of superfood in a louder orange soup bowl was being prepared with a baffling chrome kitchen tool that resembled a misplaced lawn ornament, while my two month old kitten watched everything with absolute confusion.

The smell does proceeds it. While I have spent the past three days smell the bag and waving it under people’s noses, bringing a few inquire into matcha and superfoods, the taste is not nearly so bold; which is fine, it has a taste appropriate to the standard level of flavor I got. Actually I would imagine the strong flavor level to be as overwhelming as noni fruit’s durian like smell. It has a fruity, strawberry, dusty pineapple taste. The matcha is subdued and earthy, not grassy or distracting. Flavored matcha is often aimed at smoothie use and people who don’t like grassy tastes, so I guess this is spot on its purpose, but I love grassy tastes. This is unique and I mentally put it with licorice prunes; a distinct flavors that one remembers.

…And someone tell me if drinking noni cures athlete’s foot.=)

The immunizer.

Do you know about noni? This superfruit is widely used in alternative medicine to treat various ailments *, and as evidenced by a Mayo Clinic research, has great antifugal properties.

  • (Arthritis, atherosclerosis, bladder infections, boils, bowel conditions, burns, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, circulatory weakness, colds, cold sores, constipation, diabetes, drug addiction, eye inflammation, fever, fractures, gastric ulcers, gingivitis, headaches, heart disease, hypertension, improved digestion, immune weakness, indigestion, kidney disease, malaria, menstrual cramps, menstrual disorders, mouth sores, respiratory disorders, ringworm, sinusitis, skin inflammation, sprains, strokes, thrush, and wounds.)

I have never tasted fresh noni. Not only because I live so far north it would be virtually impossible to obtain (without some sort of patenting), but also because it is said to taste conspicuously evil. Does that mean noni matcha is a bland experience? Red Leaf probably has a secret lab when they test all sorts of things and ingredients, where they took care of that one.

The taste ressembles that of guava and dragonfruit. It is relievingly exotic and sweet, albeit tart. It must be fun in smoothies and desserts. I don’t really have anything to compare it to. Try it here:

If you know of anyone who is into RAW Foods – tell them about this Noni Matcha!

It is 100% raw, pure and organic.

Dry – the first thing that came to mind was Noni flavored Scones!

After mixing up it smells like fruit and veggies with matcha!

This is pretty good. It’s a tad tart but unique and super healthy! It’s a nice change-up from your plain-jane matcha! :)

Afterthought…I like this one a bit better as it cools for a few…it becomes juicer, it seems
