Soursop leaves are grown on a tree by the same name, although it is also known by the name graviola and guanabana.
The leaves are air-dried and used to make tea, which is lime green in color and tastes a bit like green tea with a hint of vanilla.
Soursop tea is famously used to treat cancer. And there is good reason. That's because there is lab research that shows that a phytochemical in the leaves, stems and bark, as well as the soursop fruit, has anti-tumor properties that is known to shrink cancer cells, and yet leave healthy cells alone.
Cancer patients who want to use the tea in their fight against the disease should consume the tea three times per day before meals. See our free soursop tea guide
