Interesting Notes :

Hydrangea Panicilata contains cyanide and is sometimes smoked despite the danger of illness or death.


Hydrangea Serrata is brewed into a herbal tea "Ama Cha" in Japan.  It is brewed in Korea as "Sugukcha." 


Fresh leaves are also dried and brewed to produce a Buddhist ceremonial tea "Kan Butsue" which is poured over a statue of Buddha.  It is said nine dragons poured "Amrita" (i.e. a sacramental drink or blessed water) over Buddha on April 8, the day thought to be his birth day.   Buddhist now use a form of Hydangea tea in place of the now elusive Amrita .
