Graviola Herbal Tea (Soursop or Guanabana Tea)
100% pure & fresh Graviola dried cut leaves straight from the living tree
Graviola has a long history of use by Indigenous people of the Amazon Basin who use all parts of the Graviola tree -the bark, leaves, roots, fruits and seeds -for various ailments. For example, the fruit and seeds are used for intestinal health. Women also eat paw paw (the fruit of Graviola) or drink its juice to support lactation. Teas are made from the Graviola root, bark and leaves as a calming agent and a nerve tonic, as well as to support healthy glucose levels. In other parts of the world, such as the Polynesian Islands, Graviola tea is consumed daily to help brighten mood and increase quality of life. Graviola tea taken orally or applied on the skin is also used as an insect repellent.

Graviola Tea Description
Graviola is a small tree growing five to six meters in height with large dark green and glossy leaves. It is indigenous to most of the warmest tropical areas in South America, including the Amazon Basin. It produces a fruit the size of a large cantaloupe with a delicious white flesh.
Medicinal teas are not actually teas; they are usually referred to as infusions or herbal teas and are all-natural.
Wide varieties are available - many have significant scientific backing to their claims, others do not. Teas often are better sources of bio-available compounds than the powdered herb (as in capsules and pills), but are relatively weak in action compared to tinctures.
Herbal dietary supplements** have far fewer side effects than prescription- and OTC drugs. Many substances (botanicals) used in these supplements are generally considered as safe (GRAS) by the FDA.
The best way to prepare a tea infusion (herbal tea)
Heat the water to just below boiling.
Put one heaped teaspoon of medicinal tea per cup in a porcelain- or glass pot. Pour the hot (not boiling!) water over the leaves.
Use mineral- or good quality drinking water.
Let steep for at least 2 - 5 minutes, depending on the species, before straining.
If a stronger infusion is desired, let stand for 10 - 30 minutes before straining and drinking.
Occasionally stirring during steeping is recommended.
A strong infusion should be sipped in small quantities during the day since it may be too strong to drink a cup at once.
Use a tea strainer or mesh ball infuser for this purpose; if you use a paper filter, use the unbleached type.
For a delicious taste, you may add a little lemon juice and honey.
Keep the herbal tea in a cool, dark and dry place.
