The worst tasting tea I have ever had. My grandmother would give us this or senna to clean out our system. I always wanted senna because cerasee is horrible. She would try to hide it as regular tea but nothing could disguise that awful taste. It made me vomit when I tired to swallow it.

Cerasee, senna, bitters, and sinkle bible are some of the most insidious bits of wickedness inflicted on children by parents and grandparents. For no goddamn useful purpose.

Corilla is a necessary evil in life, it can allegedly cure many things. Somehow the women in my family know how to cook it down to get out most of the bitterness out and it's actually pleasant. I've never has the tea but I've had senna and reading someone wishing for senna instead is a damn powerful warning.

This extremely bitter vine is used to treat fevers in Haiti. Sometimes they put it in clairin (moonshine) to have a more powerful. They drink it to prevent fevers also.
