Bitter Melon Tea to Combat High Blood Pressure

Project Roohie # 6

How are you my fellow Soul-Searchers?

Here’s the next story for you from this project. Hope you like it!


WifeBlah’s story:

“Last year a friend of mine told me that Bitter Melon tea can help lower blood pressure. So I decided to try it.

It has been a year now that I am drinking this tea. And it is really helping with my blood pressure. I think it is acting as diuretics.


I just buy the dried Bitter Melon from the Asian store. I boil hot water, add the dried pieces of Bitter Melon to it and then boil it for another 5 minutes. I add some lemon juice to it and then drink it up.

I drink this tea daily or sometimes every other day.”

      1. Oh please don’t say sorry, it’s not a mistake. It’s just nobody knows or not everybody knows who we really are or where we came from because we don’t usually write things like these in our blogs. I really appreciate you blogging about my tea, so please don’t say sorry. πŸ™‚ Thank you so much.
