    How would you go about boiling peat, though? You might have quite a mess to clean up after! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] But that would probably separate the lignins and tannins (the real 'magic' of the tea) more quickly.

    I was thinking double cheese cloth or similar. My first thought was a tea egg, but that isn't large enough. I wonder if I could brew it in an old-fashioned coffee percolator? I can find one around here somewhere...

    Sheesh! Why don't I just start drinking it myself? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Give it a try! The experimentation is interesting.

    Please don't give it a try! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] You know, I once caught a cat doing just that. Avoid Trichoderma water, too.
