Petey, it seems that you would not have much luck in finding olive trees in or around NJ. If you want I can send you some from our groves.
To prepare them, I steep the leaves in very hot water for about 5 minutes, strain and drink the brew just like tea. I usually drink it in the morning.
A rather different preparation involves grinding one cup of olive leaves and one cup of water in a blender until you get a very fine paste or suspension. Then you take 1-2 shot glasses of this once in the morning and once before going to bed.
I have never tried the second method. I do imagine that the taste of the concoction would be bitter. The one I prefer tastes a lot milder and pleasant.
