JAMAICA HERB: Ackee leaves
Did you say Ackee leaves?
The leaves of ACKEE (Blighia Sapida) are used to make a tea. This tea is often consumed for colds,
flu, asthma and mucus congestion.
The tea can also be mixed with salt and used as a mouthwash for pyorrhoea and gum problems

I am interested in using ackee leaves as party favors for people, to make as tea.
How many leaves would you suggest to make one cup of tea?
Can freshly picked ackee leaves work to make tea?
How can the leaves be preserved, after picking?
Should they be dehydrated before, if traveling long distances and over a long period?
Also, same questions I’d like answered regarding Lignum Vitae leaves.
