What do you do with bamboo leaves?
In addition to eating bamboo shoots and bamboo leaves in a salad, as a vegetable or as a meal, you can also use the plant as a bamboo drink. As a matter of fact, people harvest bamboo to drink bamboo water.
Should you pick up bamboo leaves?
When gathered fresh, green bamboo leaves are super high in silica and make a great medicinal tea. Dry leaves that have already browned and fallen to the ground won’t have the same good flavor or health benefits. So it’s best to collect them by hand from the stalks and branches.
