Olive Leaf Tea. Olive Leaf Benefits To Your Health

As part of our quest to become as Self Sufficient as possible we have begun (slowly) to try to get more benefit from what we have around us. Trying to lead a Self  Sufficient life means (for us) trying to break away from the constraints of regular 9 to 5 Jobs

Living in the middle of a Spanish Olive Grove I began a website a while ago to try to begin selling our Raw Olives. It has been quite successful considering the high shipping charges to ship Raw Olives around the globe.

More people are looking for healthy alternatives to the chemically produced Olives many buy from the shops. The slight success of selling our hand picked Olives helps us , in part, to be as Self  Sufficient as possible. Those looking to buy Raw Olives seems to be growing all the time. Unfortunately our Season is basically over now.

Between us we have finally developed a page all about Olive Leaf Tea. The site is still very much a work in progress as it is difficult to find the time to do everything. It is getting better as we find the time to get it completed. Lots more content about Olive Leaf Tea will be added to the home page as we get the time.

Olive Leaf  Tea is quite  a remarkable giver of many health benefits and can help with all manner of ailments, and is very postitive in its health benefits. Olive Leaf benefits vary considerably. A few cups a day will give your body an anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal boost and it has many more benefits.

tea-2I can also say it tastes a lot better than any Green Tea I have ever drunk!

Anyway, this is just a little plug really for our project that has been a long time in the background but is finally nearing completion.

Normal business shall be resumed asap.

For a more self sufficient future

    Olive leaf tea! I’d never even imagined such a thing existed. And raw olives? I would love to know what they taste like!

    almostgotit’s last blog post..What if you moved to another city for your husband…

    …silly question, but can one actually *eat* raw olives? (I’ve always wondered, actually!) Or is purchasing raw ones only a metter of controlling the preserving process on one’s own?

    • Not a silly question unless you’ve TRIED a raw olive. I did (only once) when we first arrived at our olive grove. They are very bitter so have to be cured in brine for weeks at home or caustic soda (!) commercially. So yep, buying raw olives is so you can cure them at home.

  3. Yes I tried a raw olive on a trip to Greece.
    If its true that thing that taste the worst are the healthiest. Then raw olives must be super healthy.

    How do you prepare the olive leaves that you use for tea?

    • Greg,

      Some people suggest simmering the olive leaves for 10 minutes, others say just leave to infuse by covering with boiling water and leaving in a pot. That’s what we do when we want olive leaf tea, nice with a slice of lemon added too.

  5. Olive oil is a top choice in culinary when baking, frying, or sautéing since it is one of the healthiest, and also enhances the flavor in foods it’s mixed with. So, it does make perfect sense to utilize the leaves of this tree as well. It is truly a unique tea which js highly recommend.
