Amid recent pandemic outbreaks, we have seen a lot of buzz about new, innovative ways people can naturally support their immune systems and potentially fight off disease. We at Just Neem have begun drinking Neem Tea.
Why Neem in a Tea?
Working with neem for over ten years, we know the powerful benefits of neem in skincare and believe that neem could be even more useful in soothing the body from the inside out during this COVID-19 crisis. Neem tea is high in antioxidants, helping to neutralize free radicals that may lead to certain conditions. Plus, products made with neem have natural anti-inflammatory properties, calming the body and aiding in preventing and treating some diseases.
Research also suggests neem has anti-bacterial properties, anti-fungal properties, and, last but not least, anti-viral properties. All of these play an important role at different stages of a COVID-19 infection and disease-progression. However, it is important to point out that none of the above has been demonstrated for COVID-19 or in humans. Considering all the circumstantial evidence, and in the absence of any alternatives, we have started to drink Neem Tea. And now we want to make it available to our customers as well. Even though we are usually strictly about skincare, we decided to make an exception for Neem Tea during this pandemic.
The Taste of Neem Tea
We’ll be honest; Neem Tea is quite bitter. Similar to the taste of tonic water, which gets its bitter flavor from Quinine. Interestingly, neem shares many of the same properties of Quinine, such as uses in malaria treatments and being naturally sourced from trees. To avoid the bitter taste, we suggest drinking Neem Tea cold, with a little orange juice or other preferred fruit juice. This will help mask the taste and become a refreshing drink. Neem Tea could also be mixed with other teas to offset the bitterness and for added health benefits. Consider trying it as a hot beverage with black or green tea.
How to Make Neem Tea
Our Neem Tea bags come in sizes that will allow you to brew a total of 2 gallons of tea. Each bag is for 1/2 gallon of tea and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. The Neem Tea package contains detailed instructions on how to make the Neem Tea and how often to drink it. We recommend drinking a cup twice a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. At that rate, the package is suitable for a 2-week supply, and, at the full price, it amounts to $1 per cup, less than a regular cup of coffee.
Will This Keep Me From Getting Sick?
Until there is further research, there is NO guarantee that it will help prevent COVID-19, however we know Neem Tea has anti-viral properties. Even if you’re not keen on the idea of herbal remedies in tea form, there’s little doubt that drinking tea can make you feel better — especially if you’re ill. Drinking lots of liquids can be beneficial in staving off illness. So whether you’re looking to give your wellness practice a bit of a boost, or are looking for something a little more interesting to drink once you’ve had enough coffee for the day, Neem Tea could be just the thing you need to upgrade your wellness routine.
What People Are Saying
“Recently I’ve been experiencing a lot of joint pain and stiffness in my body and with the line of work I do it’s very difficult but I have come across just neem tea since Magda posted this was something new to try and it’s an anti inflammatory agent as well as so much more. I’ve been drinking this for the past three days, it’s a very bitter tea but warming it up with honey, lemon juice and orange juice it helps curve the bitterness and drinking it quickly not sipping and amazingly enough for the first time I woke up with no pain in my elbows or hips this am!!!! I’ve literally not been able to get out of bed at times￼ because it hurt so bad. ￼My fingers are still swollen, but I know in due time I will be healed from this! I’m gonna continue to drink this tea as long as I can with the results I’m getting! Thank you Lord for this miracle tea and allowing it to heal my body￼!! #justneem”

“Okay, so I want to tell you my experience thus far with the tea. Oh my gosh is it disgusting, it is seriously like a perfect example of what I think poison should taste like LOL. Mix it with orange juice, unless you like grapefruit juice, it is still completely unpalatable. But just like any other sort of liquid medicine or medicinal herbal remedy, it is not taken for the enjoyment you take it for the benefit (all while holding your breath and letting out all of the squiggles that suddenly take over your entire body). Okay enough about the taste, I have to tell you what I’ve already experienced! I had my 1st cup on Monday. Tuesday, I woke up feeling horrible. I felt like I had a fever and chills my whole body just had that flu-ish feeling. I was afraid obviously during this time, any site or sign of illness has us worried. I had my 2nd cup (it was a big one more than recommended), but I knew I wasn’t gonna be able to take a second one that evening. It really is very hard to drink, ha ha. Again this was yesterday; I had to keep my distance from everyone. I just felt so bad I was in bed all day. Today I woke up feeling wonderful; I don’t feel sick at all. I’m completely surprised! I knew for sure I was gonna wake up feeling horrible today. Yes, I believe in God, I believe in miracles, and I believe in the power of prayer. And I know people were praying for me. Still, I also believe that God uses tools to heal us, not always by the snap of his finger. And in this situation neem tea has done its job, anyone who is afraid of its flavor “should be” but the second you get over it, and you just do what you have to do it’s a real game-changer!”

“I used to have malaria every month, and I felt like it was always a toss-up wondering which would kill me first, malaria or the medication! Ten years ago, when we were told about neem from a man from India whose village always used neem and never had malaria and yet those other villages around them that did not use it were always sick and dying with malaria. We started using it, and we have not had malaria for almost 11 years now. It works and we are firm believers in it! The thing with neem is that you have to drink it every day within every 24 hours. You only need to drink it once a day, but when there are epidemics, we drink it 2 and 3 times a day just to be on the safe side. There are no side effects to it, but it is bitter to drink, though the more you drink it, the more you will acquire a taste for it. When we first started to drink it, I always dipped the tip of my finger into the sugar bowl or ate a piece of hard candy afterward just to get the bitter taste out of my mouth. I don’t do that anymore. Now I can drink it like water when it’s really cold. Anyone can drink it; we even give it to newborns. The newborns we give one teaspoonful. By two years old, we increase it to a tablespoon, by six years old two tablespoons, and by 12 years 1/4 cup (which is a good amount to take on a daily basis). Like I said, during epidemics or if the mosquitos are biting a lot, we will take it 2 and 3 times a day. Some like to drink it hot like tea and add a little bit of honey to it. I like to drink it nice and cold. It keeps in the refrigerator a couple weeks, especially if kept in a glass jar or container. If using a plastic container, the water will tend to get scungy after about a week. If you are in an area with a lot of mosquitos, I recommend to drink it at least two times a day. I hope that this helps.”
