OCT0BER 5, 2018 KHAT

Celatrus edulis also known as Khat is a herb that is not commonly discussed. It is from a thorn-less tree with green branches. It grows in Arabia. I have never seen Khat tree although on my bucket list. Imagine I have a bucket list to see plants and trees. The Arabs have used the leaves for thousands of years making tea and even chewing on the leaves

It is stated that those that take Khat become cheerful and talkative. It also has an effect of causing pleasant dreams. Its effect are said to mimic high dose coffee

The leaves are picked and sun dried, and can be used fresh. So this could be a better tea than drinking other teas and even coffee

Until tomorrow…
