Definition of oak leaf teaCategorized under "General"
Definition as written by Terry:
For acid-loving plants such as azaleas, especially in areas where water is alkaline.
In a 5-gallon bucket, fill 1/3 of the way up with oak leaves. Fill with water and let it steep for about a week, or until the color of tea. Strain out the leaves and apply full-strength to acid-loving plants. Store any unused tea in a shady spot.
(You can speed up the steeping process by pouring a few cups of boiling water over the leaves, then adding tap water to fill the bucket.)
