Juglans nigra and Juglans cinerea are two varieties of Walnut very common in America. The inner bark of the second can be used as a purgative in extract form. Its purgative effect has been compared to that of rhubarb since it causes no irritation or colic and does not weaken the intestinal tube.
Juglans ragla, which is the Common Walnut, is rich in tannin. Its leaves are used as an astringent in the form of decoction, in injections for leucorrhea and in baths for lymphatic affections.

I heard about black walnut leaf tea on an episode of House. In it, Cameron switches out House's coffee with black walnut ginger tea. It doesn't taste like walnuts, just leaves. It's not bad! I gave it to my pal Todd, who hates coffee.
