Teas are so near and dear to my heart

Medicinal herbal teas give me life! I have vivid memories of my Jamaican grandmother, making tea concoctions for every ache and pain.


When my tonsils were enlarged, she boiled goldenseal or slippery elm. When I had a headache, peppermint leaves or ginger root was steaming in a pot of water. I wasn’t thrilled to drink any of it either.

Fast forward to adulthood, and I find myself wracking my brain, trying to remember the ingredients of some of those teas. Because in all honesty, they’ve worked miracles for my body & soul.
