Sour Sop Leaves
Sour Sop Leaves
Soursop tea is an herbal tea that is made from the leaves of the soursop fruit tree. The fruit and leaves contain antioxidants such as flavonoids, phytosterols, and tannins. Soursop tea is also called graviola tea and is rumoured to have significant powers to prevent or treat cancer.
Soursop is high in vitamin C, an antioxidant known to boost immune health. The vitamin strengthens your immune system, improving its ability to defend against pathogens. It also promotes the destruction of free radicals, which can help to protect your skin and cells from environmental oxidative damage.
How to intake:
Soursop tea is brewed by taking fresh or dried soursop leaves and boiling them in hot water. Typically, three to four young leaves are enough for one serving – otherwise, the tea can be too strong.
After the leaves have been boiled, the tea should be left to steep for another 10 to 15 minutes, then served. Some drinkers choose to mix the tea with other flavours, such as green tea or matcha, but this is optional.

Rather than turning to coffee loaded with sugar or caffeinated sodas, drinking soursop tea is an easy way to increase your water consumption while ingesting important vitamins and minerals.
