New Jersey Tea (Ceanothus americanus) is a low, upright, deciduous shrub with a woody base and the upper portion made up of herbaceous spreading branches. It features glossy leaves, and a mounding shape that make this compact shrub an attractive low growing hedge. Small white flowers occur in 2 inch, branch-tip oval clusters and are followed by small black fruit. It was a substitute for imported tea during the American Revolution, and its dried (caffeine free) leaves when boiled a few minutes makes a tea similar to Lipton's regular.
