The first time that we ate some of the buds, we were amazed at how delicious they were. The taste is frankly, difficult to describe. The general consensus of others, is that they taste like mushrooms, but
we don't think so.
They have a soft, delicate texture and a taste quite distinctly their own. The best way to describe it is:
tender, mild, succulent, and juicy. There is nothing we have eaten, that is to be compared to Moringa buds and blossoms!
Many people in other countries, make a strong tea with Moringa flowers, that they use at the first sign of a cold. You can drink Moringa blossom tea, just as a beverage.
Just steep a handful of the flowers in hot water, strain, add honey and enjoy!

There is a property in Moringa buds and blossoms that is neutralized when they are cooked, so cook them slightly, before you eat them. It is better to be safe, than sorry! Eat the flowers in small amounts, as they tend to have a laxative effect on the body. According to some research, pregnant mothers should not eat the flowers, as they can act as an abortificant.
