Matoom Tea

Standard

After a foot massage session in Bangkok, I was offered a very tasty and relaxing tea. I inquired about it, turned out to be Matoom tea, comes from the Bael fruit tree. Of course, I bought a few packs of it, from an old Chinese man and his cat, and brought it home with me. Here are its benefits!

The Matoom (or Matum) tea, sliced fruit, dried in the sun, is a tasty, sweet & healthy drink. It has a hard shell, greenish, yellowish russet skin. On the inside, the flesh is bright orange when dried. The cross-sectional cut reveals the beautiful, uniform seed pockets.

Dried bael fruit is toasted for tea, hot and cold. It’s rich in carbohydrates, vitamin C, pro-vitamin A, iron, phosphorus & calcium. Now brace yourselves, because Matoom tea is effective for colds, is a good way to treat bronchitis, tracheitis, angina, asthma, is also useful for smokers and people with chronic lung disease.
