Loquat tea? (tea from the garden)
Over the weekend I trimmed our loquat tree, and was researching what I can do with the leaves. I stumbled across a website, that actually buys out loquat leaves in order to make a tea out of it. I research it further and found, that loquat leaf tea is supposed to be very high in amygdalin (cancer preventative vitamin). I dried some leaves and tried it last night. It was a very good tea. Did anybody else try this?
With the economy being what it is, I want to learn and utilize all the treasures I already have growing in my garden. I am reading that a mulberry leaf tea, should be very healthy as well. Does anybody has any other idea for a tea from the garden? Do you dry the leaves first or just steep them fresh?
Here is a link to the loquat tea:
Also, if anybody wants to try loquat tea, I have many more leaves left.
