Wisteria Tea

As a child, my next door neighbour was my surrogate Granny. Alison filled the void that my Granny left when she passed when I was 3 years old. A day didn’t pass when I didn’t pad next door, clutching my latest drawing in my grubby fingers. I had to duck under her magnificent Wisteria that clung to the very stone of her Flint Lodge to cross the threshold into the waft of overbuild cruciferous vegetables replete with the eau of ‘cheesy nibbles’

Now I make tea from wisteria flowers (the rest of the plant is toxic) and dream of carefree days past, all I need is the aroma of yellow, mushy broccoli and the memory is complete.

Simply Steep She Wisteria Flowers in boiled water for 10 minutes, strain and serve. The taste is redolent of Chestnut.

ALL OTHER PARTS OF THE PLANT ARE TOXIC. BE 100% SURE WHAT YOU HAVE PICKED. IF IN DOUBT, LEAVE IT OUT.
