  1. I’ve become a student at this site. Today I am determined to read all the tags for tea. Reading this posting a major question regarding using a blender to chop and grind papaya leaves in water was answered- Yes! A blender was used by these professional practitioners. Using a blender or crushing, squeezing, and filtering the extract/juice through a fine mesh cloth, seems to render the same successful treatments. It’s not mentioned in the article, but I would consider filtering the blended leafs through a find mesh cloth, and squeezing the cloth to get all the residual value from the process.
