25gm Golden Gumbi Wild Harvested Loose Leaf Tea 

Your choice - whole leaves so that you can crush as required and thus retain the maximum goodness and flavour or flakes.

Geijera parviflora, also known as Australian Willow and Wilga, is the second variety of Gumbi (the other one is Pittosporum angustifolium), both of which are native to inland NSW, Qld, Vic, SA and WA.  Some purport this variety to have wider health benefits.geijeraparviflora.jpg

The listed weight is the shipping weight.

Suggested usage:

Bring 1 litre of water to the boil.

Add 1½ teaspoons (or roughly chop 30 leaves with kitchen scissors) of Gumbi Gumbi tea. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Strain into a glass jar and top up to 1 litre by adding boiled water. Add honey if you like. Seal the jar and refrigerate. 

Some have suggested that you should consume the entire litre at once and

then make up a second batch to be consumed each week either hot or cold by drinking an amount of 120 ml daily with your meals. 

Quantities can be adjusted to suit.  Some people report benefit from doubling the amount of leaf whilst some reduce the amount.

Store in a cool, dry place.
