Indian Almond Leaves.

I have purchased Indian Almond Leaves a very long time ago. I was just wondering if anyone purchases these from where do you purchase? I just purchased some from a lady in Singapore on EBay. Also, what method do you use with your leaves to extract the tannins? In the past, I have just placed the leaves in the tank and left them. Do you prefer to boil them to make a Blackwater extract or do you just place them in a bucket of water and leave it alone until it is needed? I am just curious. This lady from Singapore also sells the bark. Has anyone used that? As, I have not.

Just an update...Mr.Vampire..you are right Amy is Fantastic to purchase from. I received my shipment of IAL's today..Super Fast Shipping. I am going to use the boil method and steep like tea. I won't hesitate to purchase from her again in the future.

How long do you leave them in before you change them out?

Also, is there a big difference in the quality between Grade A & Grade B leaves?

Thanks!
