Re: how do you make bean pod tea?
I have not used bean pod tea, but, here is how to make it.
Bean pod tea is made from fresh young green beans. Use about 30-40-50 gramm (1 to 1 2/3 ounces) of bean pods and boil slowly in 4 liters (4 quarts) of water for three to four hours down to 1 or 1 1/2 quarts. Pour through a fine sieve or cloth into a pitcher and store in cool place until next morning or at least a few hours. Without stirring, pour tea thru a fine cloth and it will then be entirely clear and ready to use.
Be sure and get even the smallest particles of the pods removed or it will spoil the taste and can cause intestinal disturbance. The prepared tea will readily spoil and can cause violent diarrhea. Prepare fresh every day for the next one.
Drink 150 to 200 gramm (5 to 7 ounces) each through the day. To improve the taste add a little hot milk or meat extract. Bean pod tea is a home remedy for kidney diseases, dropsica_states, kidney-stone-colic, gout or diabetes.
