Brew your own sweet and refreshing Amacha tea
Caffeine-free with no calories and a naturally sugary flavour
Makes an attractive ornamental plant too!
In Japan this hardy shrub has long been used for making a refreshing herbal brew. Better known as Amacha, this sweetly flavoured tea is made from the dried leaves of Hydrangea serrata. Once harvested, the leaves are left to dry in the sun before crushing and re-drying to create flavoursome tea-leaves. With no calories and a naturally sugary flavour, it makes a delicious alternative to normal caffeinated tea.
Hydrangea serrata 'Hydrantea' is easy to grow and makes a lovely addition to ornamental borders. Its large lace-cap flowers make a showy summer display, ranging from pink to mauve-blue depending on the acidity of your soil. With a neat and compact habit, it is perfect for a lightly shaded border or patio pot. Height and spread: 100cm (39").
