Use a food processor instead of a mortar and pestle. Mortar and pestle is fine for dry leafs, but a mess with wet ones. If making pellets or wafers agar makes a good binder but needs to be boiled in order to melt.

I always boil the leaves and agar together first, then pour into my blender while it's still hot, and blend/pour before the agar hardens.
