History & Health:
Originally from Central and South America and the Caribbean and nicknamed the 'Fruit of the Angels,' the papaya tree is known for much more than it's delicious, juicy fruit. The leaves of the papaya plant contain enzymes called 'papain' that can not only help to break down the fibers in meat, but also help in the digestion process of proteins and gluten in the gut. Seelect Tea's Papaya-Mint Leaf Tea is particularly of interest to those with celiac disease or to those with difficulty digesting gluten. Not only that, but Seelect Tea's Papaya-Mint Leaf Tea is also said to help with IBS, heartburn, and help to increase the appetite. Seelect Tea's Papaya-Mint Leaf Tea contains beta-carotene, calcium, niacin, and Vitamin C. Surprisingly, there is more Vitamin C in the leaves than in the fruit. Other great herbal teas by Seelect Tea include Catnip Tea, Parsley Leaf Tea, and Organic Senna Leaf Tea.

Steeping Directions:
Pour one cup of fresh boiling water over tea, steep 4-6 minutes. The longer the tea steeps, the stronger the flavor. Lemon or honey may be added.
