Nong-mang-kha Ginger Green Tea
Nong-mang-kha is a traditional remedy for cold, cough and everyday wellness. Known by the dwellers of Manipur for its antiviral benefits, feel good sipping Nong-mang-kha with familiar benefits of ginger and green leaf tea.
Growing up, my mother used to remind me not to play around Nong-mang-kha shrubs. But as a child, I used to think what bad could happen? Little did I know about the superstitious belief that Nong-mang-kha can ward-off evil spirits!
Nong-mang-kha is a traditional medicinal plant known by dwellers of Manipur for its antiviral benefits. When I had cold and cough, my mother would boil the evergreen leaves of Nong-mang-kha and make me sip the infusion or inhale its steam. It’s a bittersweet memory.
