    I find Hemlock to be the most pleasant tasting... so far the most palatable inner cambium that I've tried also.

    There you go with that inner cambium again .
    I actually found some Tamarack ( I think ) down the road on some county property today . Wish I could try the cambium but not my trees and they are pretty rare around here any way . Guess Ill stick with the Slippery Elm .

    Well, have tell ya that the Larch cambium off bigger trees is pretty 'packy' in a 'pitchy' kinda way, straight off the tree at least

    EDIT: right after I jumped the gun on this post is did some searching. This resource is great at identifying conifers!
    A Field Guide to Conifers

    I've made tea from:
    White fir, abies concolor Douglas fir, pseudotsuga menziesii
    Ponderosa Pine, pinus ponderosa (yuck) Engelmann spruce, picea engelmannii
    blue spruce, picea pungens

    I like Anne O. Epple's book, Plants of Arizona for ID here in AZ.

    I find it good to wash the needles in cold clean water, then bring the pot to boil, add the needles and let them steep for a few minutes. I like to let them sit about 5-10 minutes, but your taste may vary. then remove the needles and pour the tea through a filter, I use paper towels or coffee filters, to remove the floaties that came off the needles during steeping. I like it like that, but some will add honey or sugar to taste.
