    This topic has been quite popular in the Twitter universe today.

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

    At the end of the day what people will care about is if it tastes good or not. 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.

    My problem is that it is not tea.

    Can you make tea of mint? Yes if tisanes are considered tea, no if they ain’t.¬† Now would coffee-leaves make a good tisane? I don’t know. Might be better than that from that other part.

    Somehow I missed this interesting discussion, here’s another “Tea from coffee-leaves” link. This time it’s from India’s Deccan Chronicle¬†

    I don’t drink herbal teas so I won’t start with a coffee tea.
