Native to the tropics of the Americas, Papaya has been in continuous cultivation for several centuries, principally for its sweet fruit. The leaves are widely used in cooking and contain an enzyme that is useful in tenderizing tough meat. In some parts of South Asia, the young leaves are steamed and eaten like spinach.
Papaya was once considered a mystical tree; its leaves were used for medicine and its fruit for food. It remains one of the most popular herbs in Central and South America.

- Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surround it.
- This is a delicate herb and is more potent when not exposed to extremely high temperatures. So that your tea has its maximum medicinal properties and flavor, be sure that your water is slightly cooled from the boiling point when you pour it over your tea.
- If you desire a medicinal tea, be sure to use one tea bag per cup of hot water, cover and steep for 7-12 minutes. This is known as the infusion method.
- If you desire a pleasure tea or quick brew, use on teabag per cup of hot water. Pour water over teabags, cover, and let steep 3 to 5 minutes to taste. Enjoy!

Unlike many other herbal teas, it has a bunch of health benefits without any side effects. It can help people suffering from gastrointestinal diseases and disorders, cardiovascular conditions, hypertension, gluten intolerance and celiac disease, diabetes, gout, arthritis, water retention, gallstones and gallbladder disease, IBS, constipation, diarrhea, gas, menstrual cramps, colds, flues, asthma, rheumatism, autoimmune disorders, thrombocytopenia, emphysema, cataracts and other eye conditions, headaches, acne, scars, allergies, dengue fever, and even cancer. Carpaine, one of the main alkaloid components of papaya leaves, is responsible for killing bad bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, helping eradicate Helicobacter pylori, as well as intestinal parasites, lowering blood pressure, and protecting against strokes, atherosclerosis, and peripheral arterial disease. Papaya leaves are very rich in papain, a cysteine protease enzyme, which breaks down proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and even wheat gluten, making it easy to digest, flushes toxins out of the body, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, increases appetite, heals gastric ulcers, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, facilitates healing, increases platelet count, strengthens bones.

Papaya leaf tea is also a wonderful natural sleep aid and stress reliever, helping you calm down, fall asleep faster and get a good night’s rest. It’s great without anything added, as well as with a little honey, sugar/stevia, milk, or lemon juice added to taste. Don’t be too fast to throw a used papaya leaf tea bag away – it can be applied topically to heal wounds, scars, bruises, cuts, burns, rashes, warts, freckles, fungal infections, and acne-affected areas of your skin. A face mask or scrub made from its contents brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness, and small lines, helps lighten freckles, break down old scar tissue, and prevent premature aging. This tea really works for me. One cup a day makes a difference. After taking it for a few weeks, I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my overall well-being. My blood pressure has lowered, I’ve become more energetic and resilient, my headaches and period cramps don’t bother me as much as they used to, I sleep better and feel rested and refreshed when I wake up, I don’t get sick so easily, my stomach pain accompanied by heartburn and acid reflux was gone instantaneously after I drank the first cup, even my complexion has improved and some fine lines and small scars have faded since I started using my own papaya leaf face mask. So glad I ordered this tea, will definitely order again.
