Depends on which type of Kudzu tea you want to make.

For Kudzu root tea, dig up a lovely young root, wash it, dice it, boil it, strain it and you have tea.

For Kudzu leaf tea simmer a big handful of chopped Kudzu leaves in a quart of water for about 30 minutes. Strain off the liquid and put the solids into the compost bin. You may want to sweeten the tea with honey.

There are other recipes but that's 2 to get you started. Thumbs up

Is this a new plan to get ahead of the Kudzu? If you can't beat it, EAT it! Rolling on the floor laughing
