I found a nice bit of information on Indian Almond Leaves on Bettas R' Us.

This is copied...

Indian Almond Leaves are excellent additions for your spawning supplies. Use these leaves to condition your spawning tanks, or even your Betta's home! These leaves naturally decrease the PH level of the water, softening it to simulate natural breeding conditions. Also aids in the recovery of damaged fins. The tannin naturally colors the water, so don't be alarmed! These leaves will increase the vigor of your bettas and also promote spawning. These leaves are naturally fallen and sun dried. Our leaves are totally organic, no chemicals are used on the trees. They are imported directly from Thailand in the Nakhon Sawan province.

If anyone is interested you can use decaf. tea for breeding betta. i did some major research and found it can be quite useful, although not as good as black water or IAL but better than just regular water. But i found blackwater at my lfs so i dont need to use this but if anyone else cant find it, this would work just find.

I was going to try it but I settled for Atison Betta Spa, worked everytime I tried.
