Jamaican Bush Teas - Oldie But (Still) Goodie
First Published January, 2015 Aunt V having her favourite Jamaican Tea Last Sunday, I was listening to a particular program on one of our local radio stations. They were talking (and reminiscing) about the good 'ole Jamaica bush teas we had back then. Anyway, I found it very insightful and figure that I would share some of these tea bushes (plants that are used to make teas) with you. They are good for many and varied conditions, or just for a delicious hot cup! And make so bones about it, they really worked! Your's truly is a testimony to a few (but just a few) of them :-) By the way, some of some are now commercialized, I've seen them in supermarkets! I'll list some of the most popular ones now (alphabetized), but please, feel free to add your own, using the comments link below. You'll notice some interesting names, please don't ask me to explain where those names came from :-), lol! Here they are (below)... are you familiar with any of them?
