This is Bocca B, my teeny little avocado tree who loves feasting on coffee grounds and organic compost!
my teeny little super tree,
oh how I like thee!
catchers make beautiful pink tea -
great for the kidney!
guests who try it will all agree -
great tea = caffeine-free!
Ten long years
before you become all fruity -
that's just fine by me!

Call all your fellow Anne of Green Gables fans ages 9 and up to have a mostly raw food tea party!
Look Ma, no caffeine! This is waaay better than drinking sugar-laden pretend-tea orange juice!

(I heard that another kidney cleanser tea is the edible weed pansit-pansitan. I usually like my pansit-pansitan raw, in a green smoothie. But if you want to try pansit-pansitan tea, just steep the pansit-pansitan leaves in a nice tea pot filled with boiling water.)
Can you tell I'm happy that my nephrologist said my kidneys are a-ok? :D
***If you have kidney problems, it's best to listen to your doctor, not to me :D
