In the Caribbean and other parts of the World, we have been heating and drinking super healthy and organic tea before social media and the super food industry began. Soursop is an oval-shaped green fruit that has small spikes on the surface. Other names for the fruit are Guyabano, Guanábana, and Graviola, and they can be found in a variety of tropical regions worldwide. The actual edible part of the fruit is the white fibrous pulp found on the inside which has a sweet apple and strawberry slightly sour and citrus tang. So please feel free to check out our recipe for making the Soursop Juice to experience a flavorful delight. 

Now that you know a little about the fruit, we would like to share with you another Caribbean tradition of using the leaves of the Soursop tree to make tea. While the fruit itself is packed with many health benefits, so are the leaves. When these leaves are steeped in hot water to make tea, they allegedly release nutrients that help boost immune health, decrease inflammation, aid digestion, help maintain healthy blood pressure levels, and are an excellent sleep aid. We hope you enjoy our recipe for Soursop Tea and that it can become part of your healthy lifestyle.
