In the Know

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.

Let’s Explore the Papaya Tree

A tall tree with leaves only at the top, the papaya tree is actually not a tree at all! It is technically called a herbaceous plant because its “stem” (rather than a trunk) is not wood, and remains green and soft for its entire lifespan.

You already know that the papaya fruit grows on trees that hail from the tropics, originally southern Mexico to Central America. Today you will find commercial papaya trees in most tropical regions across the globe. Papaya trees need a warm climate, and soil that is well-drained. A tree cannot exist in freezing temperatures, and even temps as high as 59 degrees F won’t allow a papaya tree to thrive. The best air temperature to produce healthy fruit is 70 to 90 degrees F.

How to Brew Papaya Leaf Tea

We recommend pouring boiling water over your tea bag and covering, but suggest steeping for no longer a few minutes to ensure optimum flavor; best to experiment to find out your personal taste preference.

What Does Buddha Teas Papaya Leaf Tea Taste Like?

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.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas Logo

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
