Making tea from Ginkgo leaves
Your web page is great; I hope a have a suggestion for those lucky people like me that own a Ginkgo tree in the backyard. The leaves can be harvested by autumn months and easily dried in a common food dehydrator. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes at low temperature to dry them to the point that the stems crack easily on slight pressure. Once dried they can be easily converted into a yellow–greenish powder using a coffee grinder; I use a Krups brand. The powder can be stored in dark brown bottles until next season. As recommended by the Botanical Council an infusion of 2 g of this powder and 150ml of hot spring water make a great tea that can be sweetened with pure bee honey.
