Making Ginkgo Leaf Tea

I have a beautiful ginkgo tree that is beginning to shed it's leaves. I know tea can be made from the dried leaves. Does anyone know how to prepare the tea from the leaves?

Boil the water and infuse 1 teaspoon dried leaves for each cup of hot water. Steep the leaves for 15 minutes and strain the leaves from the l tea. For fresh leaves it takes approximately 5 times the amount of leaves to make 1 cup of tea. Good luck.
