I would like to take a minute to introduce the Kola Nut, also known as Bissy in Jamaica, to those of you who are not already familiar with it's properties. According to authors M. Henry and K.S.Harris, once grated and boiled, Bissy Tea is considered a "miracle medicine" that is said to remove poison from the body, stop vomiting, relieve upset stomach, nausea, menstrual cramps, headaches, gout and control diabetes. For more information on Bissy Tea and other Jamaica herbal remedies, you will want to check out the book "Jamaican Herbs & Medicinal Plants and their Uses," published in 2006 by authors Henry & Harris. These are images of our very own Bissy at the bakery, just before being grated, boiled, sweetened and consumed by Tony to relieve an upset stomach. If you need to feel better and want to try some Bissy Tea, give us a call and let us know you're coming. We would be glad to prepare a pot of fresh Bissy Tea to share with you, Island Organix style!
