Jamaica teas - Much more delicious!
(Queens, NY, USA)
Editorial: Jamaican teas are the best
Published October 16, 2016
I have two large flower pot with fever grass growing, here in America they called it lemon grass. I also have a pot with leaf of life, they grow so big and beautiful. Last summer I decide to try growing a sour sop tree just so I can have the leaves for tea; I brought back some fresh sour sop from Vietnam in 2014 and decided to see if the weeds would grow.
They did, so now I have a good size sour sop tree which I will have to trim because it is getting too big to bring inside during the winter.
I also grow black mint and sweet mint in the garden, they grow up each summer, however my fever grass is special, taste so good I feel like back in Jamaica as a child.
Last night I make some fever grass, with sour sop leaves I bring from Vietnam and a fresh bud of weed; lord it nice could be still drinking some now :-)
I was surprised to see all the fruits in Jamaica was also in Vietnam, star apple abundant along with jack fruit, sour sop, sweet sop, even the Jamaican apple, only they were much smaller.
I did not see any of the tea bush that grow in Jamaica
except the fever grass so I have to grow some for myself because they are so
much more delicious when they are fresh.
I cannot wait to come to Jamaica to get some of the ones I cannot get fresh here in the US, Jamaica teas are the best. WELLESLEY'S NOTE
