Popularly known for its fruit, the papaya plant's leaves are also useful, especially to create a tummy-soothing herbal tea.
Though you probably know that the orangish-yellow fruit part of the papaya tree is a common breakfast food in the tropics and elsewhere, the papaya leaf at the top of the tree is used as well, often steamed and plated up as a side dish. With this in mind, realize that even though the papaya fruit is jam packed with beneficial enzymes and phytochemicals, the leaves of the papaya tree also boast nutrients worth taking a second look at.
If you're expecting your cup of Buddha Teas Papaya Leaf Tea to taste like a sweet, sunny day in the tropics, you'll be setting yourself up for disappointment. The fruit of the papaya tree is not the leaf of the tree, so expect a rather earthy, somewhat nutty flavor. It's brownish-gold tint reveals that it's its own thing; in other words, the papaya leaf refuses to act like a papaya fruit on the set of a Hawaiian beach photo shoot. Steep carefully, as too long a dunk and the tea will turn bitter. For optimal taste pleasure, we recommend that you enjoy your Buddha Teas Papaya Leaf Tea with a touch of the sweetener you like best.
