A plant that can be eaten in the wilderness! An easily foraged wild edible in the bushland of Australia is the berries of blackberry plants. It's now early summer in Australia and we're anxiously waiting for the blackberry plants to mature so they can produce their succulent fruits. I've always wanted to try making tea from the fresh growth leaves of young blackberry plants; in this video I try it for the first time. There are many articles online stating that blackberry leaf tea has medicinal values. I normally only drink expensive imported green & white teas, so I would honestly say that blackberry tea is pretty ordinary in taste ;-) But if you were out there in a real survival situation, making blackberry tea could be one way of passing time! LOL. In the meantime I'm gonna stick with professionally grown teas. Sadly we also found definite signs of illegal cray-fishing along with the some plastic and tin rubbish that some irresponsible campers had left behind. I suspect this area of the creek has been completely fished out, Australia's Euastacus spiny crayfish are a very vulnerable species.
