Tea

Two nights ago we were talking at the dinner table and somehow it was mentioned that the tea from the beautiful evergreens in our yard made a great tea full of vitamin C. My son asked if he picked some would I make him a cup to try. So after dinner out he trudged in the snow to pick hemlock greens. Everyone enjoyed a sip of tea.
Last night he asked if tonight I could make some white pine tea. Sure. Now, the girls were excited and all three children ran out in the snow for the greens. I made sure that they knew they had to thank the tree for its gift. This time collecting more they all enjoyed a cup.

Very cool. How do you make this tea? I live in Australia. Can tea be made from Eucalpyt leaves?
