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.
