Brewed Guyabano Leaves

I've been brewing guyabano leaves since I get back in Tabuk.  My mother-in-law, Mama Glo taught me about this.  The taste?  Well, it tastes like a combination of mild buko juice but not sweet and pandan.

Guyabano or soursop has already been the subject of several medical studies due to its health benefits.  It is believed that guyabano can be used as :  "a natural cancer treatment, guyabano is a sedative, a tranquilizer and a nerve tonic; It is also effective in maintaining our intestinal health like eliminating stomach and bowel discomforts; it also has a calming effect on our moods by lowering blood pressure" (source:  Manila Bulletin - The Incredible Story About Guyabano )

I use this as base for my drinks :-) the same way as we have been using our tea water (see tea water)


Guyabano Leaves - around 20 pcs
Water - 1 L

Cooking Procedure:
place the water and guyabano leaves in a pot and bring to a boil. Boil for about 10 minutes under medium fire

Serve hot or cold.  You can also use it as base for any drinks :-) Like what we do with our tea water.
