  1. Pluck the top 2 leaves and bud on the new spring growth.
  2. Steam these leaves (like you would vegetables) for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Run cold water over the leaves after the 2 minutes. Your leaves should still be green in colour.
  4. Roll the leaves with your hands into tube shapes, imagine cigars.
  5. Spread them on an oven dish and place in the oven at 100 degrees C for 10 -12 minutes (turn after 5 minutes).
