Probably the most significant aspect of this beverage is that it's not made from the Sheep's Sorrel Plant -- this is just a name that it has acquired all over Appalachia, due to the use and misuse of common names of plants. This tea is actually made from the Violet Wood Sorrel plant, Oxalis violacea. In any case, Sheep's Sorrel Tea tastes like the best tropical fruit punch you ever had. I consider it a delicacy and few people have ever tasted it. You can identify the Violet Wood Sorrel plant fairly easily as the leaf looks like a clover-leaf, typically growing in the eastern United States in bunches on dry soils, and the underside of each leaf/leaflet is dark purple in color. If you chew one of the small leaves, it will taste very sour. My dad, a locally renowned naturalist, taught me how to make this tea, and now, I am sharing it with you folks. I especially like to make this when I'm out camping and when I'm lucky enough to come across a nice crop of Violet Wood Sorrel. It really is a liquid delicacy. Enjoy!
