Soursop Green Tea is green tea without the bitter after taste. It’s fragrant in a citrus kind of way, and tastes as good as it smells. It’s Sri Lankan green tea, but the addition of soursop is the X factor. Soursop is a type of custard apple which originated in the Americas, and is now common right through Asia and the sub-continent.
Soursop is held in awe in the West Indies. They use Soursop leaves as a folk remedy for blood pressure, fever, diabetes, indigestion… and more serious conditions. Whilst all those green tea antioxidants may be doing good, the calming effects of the additional soursop extracts can also make for a calming sleep aide.
This loose leaf tea is from Mlesna of Sri Lanka – all 100grams of it. This is the only Soursop Green Tea in the world which uses genuine Soursop extract rather than imitation. That’s why it’s so good.
Crucial trivia : Australia has problems getting this because the Ukraine takes most of the production. Ukraine’s ‘Orange Revolution’ co-leader and former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko named Soursop Green Tea as the only beverage she drank. She got nearly half the popular vote in the Ukraine’s recent election but was jailed… and only recently released. Drinking it is now a Ukraine political and feminist act.
