Sunday Kitchen #147 Kawakawa Tea

Today I went to my aunty and uncle's house to do some gardening.
My uncle showed me this tree called Kawakawa and told me that you can make tea from the leaves.

I'd never tried Kawakawa tea before, so I took some leaves home and made some tea.

First I boiled the jug.

Then I put two leaves in a tea pot.

I added boiling water and I left it for 5 minutes.

Then poured it into cups.
It just looks like hot water but it actually has quite a strong flavour.
It's ... interesting. I'm not sure if I would call it delicious ... but maybe it'll grow on me.
