Aunt V having her favourite Jamaican Bush Teas
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 figured that I would share some of these tea bushes (plants that are used to make teas) with you.
And so this page was born!
They are good for many and varied conditions, or just for a delicious hot cup!
And make so bones about it, many among us have testified that they really work!
