Papaya Leaf Tea
Since humans first began cultivating it thousands of years ago, papaya fruit has become synonymous with tropical deliciousness. Few people know, however, that the leaves of this tree are also valuable in their own right, with numerous applications. It is served as a leafy green vegetable in some countries, added to salads or steamed, similar to spinach. The leaves are also used as a natural meat tenderizer, wrapped around tough meat to let it tenderize overnight. The tradition of papaya leaf tea goes back several centuries, and is now being noticed worldwide in the herbal tea community. The tea is smooth, with a subtle, slightly bitter flavor. It can be pleasantly accompanied by a bit of honey, which complements the natural flavor and makes it a very enjoyable cup of herbal tea.
