I never had it before…nor did I know it existed…nor did I know how many health benefits the tea has. Here are just some of the many amazing health benefits:

- regulated menstruation
- healthy skin
- better heart health
- high in antioxidants
Recent scientific data suggests that papaya leaf may be useful in fighting cancer as well. “According to research published in the ”Journal of Ethnopharmacology” in February of 2010, papaya leaf tea showed promise in treating a variety of human cancers in vitro including cervical, breast, lung and pancreatic cancers. Scientists posit that the anticancer effects of papaya leaf tea may be due to the stimulation of immune cells that kill cancer cells. University of Florida researcher Dr. Nam Dang, one of the team members responsible for the study, elaborated on the university’s website that papaya leaf tea demonstrated no toxicity on human cells, potentially making it a safe, natural treatment for many forms of cancer.”
I just started learning about the health benefits of Papaya and I’m excited to add this tea from HerbalPapaya.com to my daily health regimen.
HerbalPapaya.com offers a wide variety of high quality papaya products and they give 10% of profits to educating and empowering girls in Africa. They also support the farmers by paying fair market value for Papaya which increases the availability of chemical free, organic papayas. Herbal Papaya tea is USDA Organic, GMO-Free, Fair-Trade, Kosher-Certified and 100% manufactured in FDA inspected and approved facilities in the U.S.A.
The box of tea bags says:
For maximum benefit, Papaya Leaf Herbal Tea must be properly prepared. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial extracts that end up in your tea cup.
DIRECTIONS: Bring 8oz water to flash boil. Pour over tea bag and steep fro 5 to 8 minutes. Gently squeeze teabag to release any remaining extracts. Serve sweetened with sugar or honey if desired. Drink 2 to 3 cups daily.
Now, I’m not a tea drinker so I’m not sure if I made the tea correctly or not, but I did have to add some honey to it to get rid of the slight bitterness. Otherwise, it’s pretty tasty and it’s healthy! I will eat or drink pretty much anything when I know it has health benefits lol….anyone else like this?
