    Persimmon Tree Leaves Beneficial in Tea
    I am always surprised and so thankful for the way our Higher Power works around us. I mean seriously, seek and ye shall find is a literal suggestion. Just look at how many beneficial natural remedies and preventative herbal medicines are all around us. I just love going out picking and then coming back in to experiment with different flavors, especially flowers.

    The persimmon tree leaves have received a lot of scientific attention lately. The persimmon leaf is noted for its use in China, Japan and Korea, for centuries and centuries, thousands of years, to brew a body beneficial tea.
    According to multiple sources the Chinese Academy of the Sciences found that this particular tea contains a large variety of Vitamin C, tannins, flavonoids, rutin, choline carotenoids, amino acids. In addition, the tea were found to contain 10 elements: Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn), titanium (Ti), calcium (Ca), phosphorous (P), and more. These elements are found to aid to healthy bodily functions. Compared to other teas, persimmon leaf tea contains a higher level of health and nutritional benefits. Analysis has shown persimmon leaf tea contains up to 10 times the amount of Vitamin C, tannins, flavonoids, rutin, choline and essential amino acid(Study conducted 1980. CAS). A Korean Study concluded that persimmon tea contains 3.5~20.8 times more vitamin C than green tea!

    The ripe fruits are really good and super sweet too, but I was interested in the leaves. You see my 2 camellia's (which were here when we bought the property over a decade ago) are the wrong kind for tea leaves. How can an herbal infusion be considered a tea as well without "tea" leaves

    Well guess what? Last year we purchased the 2 wooded acres that join our property on one side, it was just before the cancer diagnosis, after which I got really sick. As I have mentioned I am currently recovering from radiation and chemo treatments (PET SCAN CLEAN!), and I am getting out and about more. Today we decided to walk the woods and see what the Lord may have naturally blessed us with there ( I plan to get some ginseng going this fall). Well, lo and behold we have not the 1 right on the border (which I have picked from in previous years), not 2, but 3 very nice, and blooming right now, PERSIMMON TREES! Can You Believe It? This is so absolutely GREAT!

    Persimmon definitely adds a kick to the cup. It is not a tea to sit and gulp down in a rush, but something you sip delicately, and savor. Adding Persimmon leaves to my brew actually gives coffee a run for its money. Sans Caffeine and plus all the benefits.

    Youtube: The Power of Persimmon Leaves Most have heard of the persimmon fruit and have experienced the wonderful sweet, juicy favor that burst in your mouth with every bite. I love them. I recently learned that the persimmon leaves are quite beneficial when used to make tea. The leaves remain green generally speaking from spring through the summer months, and aren’t used for making tea until the fall season when they have turned a lovely reddish/orange in color, with a few specks of green and black. When the leaves are steeped, the color of the tea when hot is orange however once it’s allowed to cool off a bit it turns brown. I have to warn you persimmon leave tea has a somewhat sour/bitter taste when it’s hot; but strangely becomes slightly sweet once it cools. Some of the health benefits on persimmon tea is its ability to assist in the prevention of high blood pressure, it is high in fiber and its said that the leaves has thirty times more vitamin C than oranges; the leaves possess pro-vitamin C which gives it the ability to survive the brewing process. All in all the Persimmon leaves are a wonderful and effective herbal remedy and has been used for many years. If you find yourself dealing with high blood pressure or in need of increasing your vitamin C intake as well as adding additional fiber into your daily diet; you may want to speak with your healthcare provider to see if this tea could be of benefit in your overall well-being. I find it fascinating learning about the many natural plants that God placed on this earth for our pleasure and our healing. After all, the Bible says in Rev 22:2niv “And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. Maybe we can get that on this side heaven.” Blessings Carla Rene’

    Persimmon Leaf Tea


    Do you have pollen allergies? Do you bruise easily or bleed under the skin (purpura)? Do you have poor immunity to colds and flu? Enjoy refreshing persimmon leaf tea.

    I had a nice phone conversation with Penny Frazier, who grows persimmon plants for the tea leaf and fruit. Her company Goods From The Woods is located in Licking, Missouri. She used to have a terrible pollen allergy that prevented her from going out in the fields for harvest. Drinking persimmon leaf tea cured her allergies. Other customers of hers have reported improvement of digestive complaints. The tea is slightly bitter and can be laxative in large doses. Penny has a blog at her website that features news about piñon pine nuts, a fine source of protein and a tasty treat. Her company grows wild plants, specialty teas, fruits, mushrooms, and piñon nuts in season.

    In Chinese Medicated Diet a textbook in a series published by the Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, persimmon leaf tea is recommended for thrombopenic purpura defined as dermorrhagia (fa ban), hematohidrosis (ji niu) and visceral hemorrhage (xue zheng) bleeding under the skin. Symptoms are excessive accumulation of “toxic heat” (inflammatory bacterial or acidic impurities) with purple ecchymosis (bruises resulting from trauma), nose bleeds, bleeding gums, blood in the urine, irritability, red tongue with yellow coating, and a wiry rapid pulse. In more extreme cases there may also be excessive menstruation, afternoon fever, hot palms and soles, dizziness or palpitations.

    Persimmon leaf tea may work because it strengthens blood capillaries. In the 1980s, the Chinese Academy of Sciences found that persimmon leaf tea contains a large quantity of Vitamin C, tannins, flavonoids, rutin, choline, carotenoids, and amino acids. In addition, the tea contains: magnesium, manganese, titanium, calcium, phosphorous among others. Scientific research has shown that drinking persimmon leaf tea promotes a healthy metabolism. Rutin helps prevent arteriosclerosis (fragile capillaries). Flavonoids lower blood pressure and increase blood flow. According to Japan’s “Longevity” magazine, drinking persimmon leaf tea can prevent melanoma. The tea’s health benefits generate anti-cancer and anti-influenza virus interferons.

    Persimmon Leaf Skin Treatment for Bruises and Aging Skin

    Brew a pot of strong persimmon leaf tea by adding 1 teaspoon of the dried leaves for each two cups of boiling water. Allow it to stand overnight. Drink a cup or more of the tea daily. Fill a spray bottle with cold persimmon leaf tea and use it as a cooling skin spray. Add persimmon leaf tea to aloe vera gel and apply it with sterile cotton to clean skin. Avoid applying any skin preparation or cosmetic that contains alcohol or fragrance, often made using alcohol as a preservative, because alcohol can weaken blood vessels.

    There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."Theodore Roosevelt-1907.
