This one might take some getting used to, but don’t let the bitter taste prevent you from enjoying this beneficial tea! The leaf and fruit of the papaya tree have a vastly different flavor profile, but both offer health benefits. Papaya leaf tea serves as a diuretic, digestive aid, platelet booster, has over 50 nutrients (including vitamins A, B17, C, and E, protein, iron, papain), can offer acid reflux relief, and many more benefits.* We recommend reducing the brewing time and using a touch of sweetener to enhance your drinking experience!

Flavor: bitter, earthy

Please note that due to the medicinal properties of this herbal tea, the taste is bitter when taken without sweeteners / honey.

To get the full benefits, it is recommended that the tea be taken without any sweetener.

Papaya leaf (also known as pawpaw and melon tree) has been used in medicinal applications for centuries as it provides almost miraculous results.* Native to many tropical regions, the papaya plant (Carica papaya) also has industrial, culinary, and cosmetic uses. The presence of alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, glycosides, and saponins in papaya leaf lend to its therapeutic action.* 

Some benefits of papaya leaf tea include:* 

  • Anti-malarial. This tea can help prevent malaria via the action of certain compounds found in papaya against mosquito larvae. These compounds can also be effective against dengue fever.
  • Ulcers. Papaya leaf tea may be a potential treatment for gastric ulcer and oxidative stress. 
  • Digestive aid. The enzyme papain assists with protein & carbohydrate digestion and is useful for treating gastrointestinal disorders such as constipation and bowel disorders. Papaya leaf tea may also help digest gluten, a wheat protein, which is difficult for some people to digest and triggers an autoimmune condition (celiac disease).
  • Dewormer/parasite remover. Certain properties found in papaya leaf aid in the elimination of intestinal parasites when taken regularly in the morning on an empty stomach. 
  • Immune system boost. Enhances the production of Th1-type cytokines, small proteins that have a role in regulating the body’s immune system. 
  • Healthy skin. Can serve as an acne, zit, and eczema treatment due to its antioxidant properties.
  • Appetite enhancer. Calms and soothes the stomach, plus increases metabolism.
  • Boosts platelet count. Can help manage thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) induced by dengue fever, a bone marrow disorder, or other factors. Some of the proposed mechanisms of action behind papaya leaves increasing platelet count include stabilization of platelet membranes, reduction of platelet destruction, and increased expression of a gene that elevates platelet production (ALOX 12). 
  • Antioxidant properties. Papaya leaf is rich in several compounds with antioxidant properties (kaempferol, caffeic acid, papain, etc). It also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties that are useful in treating several ailments, such as skin aging, and chronic disease.

How to Brew/Use

Our brewing recommendations are below, but feel free to prepare your brew to suit your preference! Your main considerations should be water quality and temperature, tea quantity, and steeping time.

We recommend using 1 tea bag per 8 oz of water at a full rolling boil (212°F) and steeping anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes. Teas prepared from light, delicate blossoms or leaves require shorter steeping times than more hearty herbs. If you prefer a stronger brew, we suggest using multiple tea bags.

These steps provide a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb. Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel vessels, but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.  

Side Effects/Allergens

Papain in papaya leaf has been known to cause allergic reactions in some. Note that papaya is likely safe for most people when taken by mouth in moderate amounts, either in food or as medicine. Papaya can be possibly unsafe when consumed in large amounts or when taken as an oral medicinal. As papaya may be an abortifacient (a substance that induces abortion), its consumption during pregnancy is not advised.
