I do Not Come Up In Searches

Have not been posting as regularly lately. There are a couple of reasons for that though. Number one I have been so super busy with my herbal tea preparations, but also because NONE of my blogs or the website storefront to buy my teas shows up in any searches. Very disappointing:(


  1. I did a search for persimmon leaf tea today and you came up in the search. I was hoping to find out if I should use young, mature, or leaves that are ready to fall, ore even if the sepals on the top of the fruit confer the same benefits? I also read some discussion of how broken leaves allow more oxidation, which would seem to indicate that leaves should be dried whole and crushed just before brewing.

    1. Hello so sorry been super busy and have not logged in to my google account lately ;) I have a post somewhere in here lol, Persimmon trees do not fruit every year, but basically the best time to pick your leaves fruiting years is after the fruit sets, but before it ripens. Here in Ga it is usually mid to end of June. If it is a year your tree is not fruiting same time or you can even wait a little later, but before fall arrives while they are nice and green. Fruiting years best to pick before they ripen because the fruit takes a lot of the trees energy and good stuff out of the leaves to send it to the fruit.

    2. oh and yes dried whole and kept whole, crush just before using best way :)
