This herb, sourced from Thailand, has a fresh crisp flavour, reminscent of a Granny Smith Apple.Β With its finger-like fruit and broad shady leaves, the tamarind tree is hard to miss. Native to Africa, then spread around the world by ancient Arab traders, tamarind has a long association with eastern spirituality. In fact, in India it is said the Hindu goddess of rain, Mariyamma, lives under its wide leafy branches. Tamarind, in particular the leaves, also has a long history of use by practitioners of natural medicine.

Looking again to India, where they are commonly known as Imli Patta, tamarind leaves are said to aid digestion and act as a laxative, owing to high levels of fiber. Modern food science has also shown that tamarind leaves contain potassium, iron, calcium, Vitamin C, ascorbic and tartaric acid. This of course, makes tamarind leaf tea a great way to counter everything from the common cold to coughs and sore throats. Here's to the mighty tamarind, may Mariyamma forever keep you in her good graces.

Tamarind tea as a natural cough remedy is a mainstay of herbalists throughout India, Africa, Mexico and some parts of the Caribbean. Tamarind tea is easy to make and oh-so-soothing. You'll need: Medium saucepan, 16 oz water, 2 tbsp tamarind leaves, honey or agave, and lemon. Simply bring water to a boil, add tamarind leaves to the saucepan and simmer 5 to 7 minutes. Strain into a cup, sweeten to taste, add a squeeze of lemon and enjoy!
