The West Indian bay leaf (pimenta racemosa) is much more fragrant and aromatic than its Turkish, Indonesian, Californian, or Indian cousins.
Its flavor is intense and highly spiced, with complex notes of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg along with hints of vanilla and cardamom. If you rub the leaves, the distinctive scent will remain on your fingers for hours.
The major benefit of regularly consuming bay leaf tea is that it’s good for your heart. This is because of its powerful combination of potassium, antioxidants, and iron.
Where Does Your Bay Leaf Come From?
