In the Philippines, two libido boosting teas are making waves—Honey Moon Tea and Lee MF-Rhino Tea. Readily available at Mercury Drug Stores, these teas are manufactured by Tai Ping Trading Co., Ltd. (Honey Moon) and Wei Hui Trading Company (Lee MF-Rhino), respectively. Both companies are based in Hong Kong. Advertising for these products have been minimal, being confined to magazines like FHM men's magazine and others, but awareness of these products have been spreading by word of mouth and sales are constant, even as people talk about these libido products in hushed tones.
a post on Lee MF-Rhino Tea, also in this blog, A Taste of the Philippines, some of the questions typically asked by people about that product have been answered. But many have also been asking about the Honey Moon Tea, and this article should be able to shed some light on the product and its ingredients. It does not go into details about the specific ingredients, though. But it should be enough.
The following list the ingredients of both Honey Moon and Lee MF-Rhino teas. You can see here which ingredients are shared by both brands and which ones are unique to the other.
Honey Moon Tea Lee MF-Rhino Tea
Herba Epimedu leaves .525 g Herba Epimedii .325 g
Herba Cyanomoru stem .525 g Herba Cynomorii .325 g
Woodwardia Japonic .500 g NOT INCLUDED
Fructus Polygalea .475 g Fructus Polygalae .300 g
Yang Gong Cao aerial .425 g NOT INCLUDED
Radix Polygalea root .425 g Radix Polygalae .325 g

Pilose Antler antler .325 g Pilose Antler .125 g
NOT INCLUDED Rizoma Cibotii .325 g
NOT INCLUDED Rizoma Drynariae .275 g
You can see that two ingredients in Honey Moon Tea, Woodwardia Japonic rhizomes (wasabi) and Yang Gong Cau aerial are not in Lee MF-Rhino Tea. On the other hand, Rizoma Cibotii (for back and knee aches) and Rizoma Drynariae (for bone strength), are not in Honey Moon Tea.
Both Honey Moon and Lee MF-Rhino teas come in granular and semi-powdered form. If you sprinkle a few grains on your tongue, you will find that both products are slightly sweet to the taste. But you should only use about half a cup of water with the contents of a sachet, otherwise, the tea will taste bland. Otherwise, just add sugar.
As of this writing, Honey Moon Tea costs P91 per sachet at Mercury Drug store, compared to Lee MF-Rhino Tea, which is available in a thee-sachet promo pack for only P75. If you're wondering which is better to purchase, then it's likely Lee MF-Rhino Tea. Why settle for one sachet when you can have three that contains basically the same things as the other brand? Just add more than one sachet to your glass or mug and you've got a more potent brew! Be careful that you do not overdose and always test first to see if you are allergic to the teas. Always consult a real doctor about taking health supplements.
