Can tea be made from the leaves?I call these kumquats. They are from a small tree like a lemon tree family, and are deliciously tarty. I always eat the whole thing including skin.
Loquats or Japanese plums, just don't call it a kumquat - FreshPlaza
11 Apr 2014 - Loquats or Japanese plums, just don't call it a kumquat. The loquat tree is getting ready for its 15 minutes of fame now because of its prolific fruit production, which can be used in sauces, jam and pie filling, or eaten off the limb. Unlike the citrus fruit, the fuzzy yellow loquat is kin to apples and pears.
Hope it helps.
Assuming these are loquats and not kumquats, I just tried them for the first time and I do like them. I ate them whole, they are very enjoyable. From what little I’ve read, they and in particular, their leavs, are said to have some medicinal properties, which drew me to them in the first place. I wanted to be sure they were actually loquats, before attempting to make tea.No idea! Was wondering why it took 8 hours to see your post! I have never heard of making tea with their leaves, but then again, I have never heard of a lot of things. Do you like the flavour of kumquats? I love them. Very rarely do I get to eat them.
What I have been eating, definitely have a citrus flavor and texture
