Papaya Leaf Tea

I can’t find papaya leaf tea in your tea tasting comments. May I add? I have studied papaya leaf tea for six years after rumors that it had effect against cancer. I ordered cut papaya leaf from India. It was bitter. So I tried to grow it myself. Finally I have experienced its perfected state. “young” papaya leaf is much different…very expensive to grow and to buy. The young leaf tea has a beautiful “cup” like a green tea, but has an exquisite aroma that is smoky and fresh. Now I am involved in a not for profit project to grow it and continue research in Jamaica.
