Pawpaw Leaf Australia
Pawpaw Leaf Australia supply Certified Organic Pawpaw leaf. We are certified under Organic Growers of Australia, OGA certification number 4508A. Pawpaw Leaf is supplied both fresh and dried.
Being certified organic means we subject our growing methods to an annual audit. Certifying companies physically check both our records and farming practices to ensure we comply with the Organic Standard with regard to the fertilisers and pest management compounds applied.
Any farmer can call themselves organic, but being certified organic shows that those farmers are willing to have their farming methods scrutinised.
Whilst growing the pawpaw trees here we use only natural fertilisers, not synthetic as most conventional fertilisers are. We do not use pesticides or fungicides.
Therefore the leaves grown by Pawpaw Leaf Australia are the healthiest available.
Preparing fresh pawpaw leaf tea
- Place 400 grams of fresh washed pawpaw leaf, either cut or whole, into a 20 litre pot.
- Cover with 5-6 litres of water, bring to the boil covered, and simmer for 45 minutes.
- The water will now be the colour of weak tea. Allow it to cool, filter into glass containers and store in the refrigerator. Part can be frozen if preferred.
- Dilute with water or drink straight.
