And I think it brings us back to an old topic we discussed a while back: what is tea?

According to the article it’s not very promising… I don’t know what the caffeine content of a coffee leaf is, but if it’s rather high, that will add an extra bitterness to the resulting brew. I’ll like to try it, just out of curiosity. January 16, 2013 at 14:27 #9412 XavierParticipant @xavier My problem is that it is not tea.

Might be better than that from that other part. February 8, 2013 at 16:16 #9528 JackieKeymaster @jackie Somehow I missed this interesting discussion, here’s another “Tea from coffee-leaves” link. This time it’s from India’s Deccan Chronicle February 9, 2013 at 21:52 #9529 riccaicedoParticipant @riccaicedo Has anyone tried it?
