Graviola is a rainforest plant that has been part of the natural and traditional medicine of Central and South America and the Caribbean for centuries. It has an extremely wide range of medicinal properties, which are distributed through the different parts of the plant. The bark, leaves and roots can be made into a soothing medicinal tea, taken as a sedative or an antispasmodic.
Research also bears out the traditional use of graviola tea as a hypotensive – that is, a remedy for high blood pressure. The bark can also be used to treat fever, and the leaves are used topically to speed the healing of wounds. The unripe fruit is especially prized as a digestive aid .Additional utilization of graviola has been documented within specific native healing traditions.

It is also used for arthritis and rheumatism, and some mothers eat and drink the graviola fruit to increase lactation .In view of this extensive list of benefits, the claims for graviola’s cytotoxic effects on tumors and cancer cells have acquired a certain credibility for many people.
The enemies of tea are air, heat, light, moisture and odors from other foods. To preserve its freshness as long as possible, tea should be stored in a cool and dry place, in a container that is opaque and airtight. An airtight tin is best. Avoid glass jars, as this exposes the tea to light. Since tea absorbs other odors very easily, it is important to store it away from any strong-smelling foods. We do not recommend that you refrigerate or freeze teas.
Storage Conditions to Avoid
Avoiding just five storage conditions will make a huge difference in the shelf life of your tea. These factors are light, heat, moisture, odor and air.
Light and UV rays degrade your tea very quickly. Avoid buying tea from vendors who store their tea in clear glass or plastic containers and avoid storing your tea in anything clear unless you plan on keeping it in a dark cabinet.
Heat also degrades your tea. Avoid placing it in the sun (see also: Light) or near heat sources, like a stoves and ovens.
Moisture causes problems, too. Tea is shelf stable because it is dry. Unfortunately, it absorbs water from the air very easily. Until it is ready to brew, keep it away from boiling water . Avoid other humid areas, like above a dishwasher vent or in a refrigerator. Obviously, you won’t want to expose your tea to liquid moisture either unless, of course, you’re brewing it.
(Note: Storing tea in the fridge is an incredibly common mistake. The only teas that should be stored in a fridge are tightly sealed canisters of Japanese green teas and those should be consumed very shortly after they are opened.)
Odor is something that tea absorbs very easily. It also means that storing your tea near a spice cabinet, trashcan or other source of odor is a no-no.
Air exposure increases the chances that your tea will absorb moisture and odors. Avoid leaving tea out, or storing it in porous packaging materials, like paper bags.
