Tea With a Side of Numbness
When we first arrived at the village, we were greeted with a dance and then some tea. Never turn down hospitality. The tea tasted different and we were told that it was brewed using some of the indigenous herbs that are grown right in the village. After a few sips, we noted that the backs of our throats and our tongues were numbing. A little scary...but part of the experience. I can understand how this stuff has healing powers! This picture is of Sululu (the director of Terrawatu) and I enjoying our cuppa.
