You asked the right person! I totally love fig trees, fig leaf tea, and of course also the most delicious fruit in the universe, the sun-ripened fig. Fortunately for me, my favorite aunt has a venerable fig tree that has been in her back yard for 20 years or more (and before that it was somebody else's back yard) and it bears perfect figs in abundance every summer and fall. I know they are very healthy, but the reason I eat the figs is for the extraordinary taste. I just don't know of anything more delicious than a fresh fig. The fig leaves, however, are known to help regulated blood sugar so that some people who have to take insulin shots do not have to take them any more, or at least not as much. For some reason, foods that I am naturally attracted to seem to be the same ones that are known to help regulate blood pressure and glucose level...such as ginger and fenugreek, and yes, fig leaves. I gather the fig leaves and dry them in the sun and then break them up into bits to store and prepare like any other tea. A little cup at night usually makes me sleepy, though, so I wait until just before bedtime to have it.
