yup cerasee alright :P people would wanna drink this after Christmas to clean out their systems lol it's more than just bitter, more like unappeasing to the tongue lol
Also known as Caraille in Trinidad & Tobago ... An unappeasing doh evn begin to properly describe! LOL
I never knew that...... Thanks for sharing :)
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.
I agree with marleen is bitter and all i fine is it runs my belly no other property in it
I love this plant. It works for me.
Curasee/cerasee tea with honey tastes like tea with a little bit of (cannot really describe the taste) but it tastes good.
Some people also call it coolie paw paw in Grenada
It is called Carroyla in Grenada
I hate cerasee its taste so awful but ye it is useful in all ways
i hate cerasee so much. as soon as i drank it i spit it out.
It is really good for the body, but the taste is unexplainable.
My GrandMother used to give me every month after my periods it was very very bitter but I tell u. It works for a lot of ailments 👌🏽
that is some use full information
I saw people in Tobago use the freshly picked vine as scrubbing pad when taking their (sea)bath. I tried it and cannot recall any specific after effect. Pleasant natural wash cloth ;)
I ain't drinking this for nothing but I must say from experience it does have medicinal benefits. It was recommend to me when my son had rashes on his skin as a baby. I was told to wash the bush in water and bathe him with the water which I did and it worked and continues to.
It is bitter, but it helps to purify the blood. It’s called Co Com Coolie.
I’m eager to try but, don’t know where to purchase in the U.S.
Better with lemon and a little salt
1 metre of cerasee vine, stewed in boiling water is undrinkable "medicine" BUT 2 or 3 young leaves steeped in a cup of hot water gives a pleasant, refreshing drink - ideal for hot weather
