Moringa Oleifera has many names: Miracle Tree, Tree of Life, Horseradish Tree (because its roots smell like horseradish) and even "Drumstick Tree", this because of its drooping bean fruits that look like drumsticks.
Originally the Moringa tree comes from the Himalayan region of Northwest India, now this plant is cultivated in over 80 countries. For about 5000 years, the tree has been used in India and is part of Ayurveda medicine.
Moringa leaves taste very rich and pieces of apple and pineapple add the pleasant fruity notes to this complex tea blend, while ginger contributes some spice.
Until now, these exceptional quality raw materials have only been available as loose tea; it is only Sirocco's handmade tea bags that make it possible to process these premium teas as individually packaged tea portions.
The handmade bags made of biodegradable material are packed on the basis of natural corn starch (no nylon). Without the use of glue or staples, each bag is individually sewn by hand with unbleached, natural cotton thread - truly a small work of art.
Over 100 years ago, Alfons Kuster founded his coffee roasting company on the upper side of Lake Zurich. Even then with a great love of detail. Just like today. Sirocco still finds the best producers for you. People who care for their products with heart and soul. People who make no compromises when it comes to the quality of their precious raw products.
Of course, much has changed since then, but the company makes a point of ensuring that the spirit of this venerable tradition lives on with modern and sustainable cultivation and processing methods. Because that's where coffee differs from coffee and tea from tea. That is precisely where our palate feels the difference. And enjoys the memory of tradition with every drop.
