Pecan Leaf Tea

Asked July 9, 2013, 1:34 PM EDT

Dear Sir/Madam, I have tried to do research on whether or not tea made from pecan leaves is toxic to humans but I have not found a credible source for an answer. I have searched for other nut and fruit tree leaves used for tea but again no credible answer. Has A&M done any kinds of studies or research on the topic or do you have an answer from another credible source? Respectfully, Antonio Garza

Texas A & M has not done any research on this topic to my knowledge. More than likely any tea made from pecan leaves would be extremely bitter due to all of the tannins in the leaves.
