Well, I’ve done it! After many months of experimenting with how to cure the leaves (ok, just a couple — but it *was* tricky 🙂 ), I now have a very pleasant Ceanothus tea. It’s like a fine green tea with plenty of flavor and no unpleasant grassy taste.
Now the next steps will be:
1) Confer with others and get their opinions.
2) Continue work on finding a method for a more “black” variety (which is a bigger challenge).
I must admit that I am quite excited. 🙂
