Mexican Tarragon, Tagetes lucida
The Mexican Tarragon is a beautiful, bright green perennial herb from the Sierra Mandre Oaxaca Mountains of Mexico.
Mexican Tarragon has a very mild anise flavor and a sweet taste. In Mexico, it is traditionally used as a tea to calm stomachs, relax nerves and to alleviate the symptoms of a hangover. Its also used as a flavoring for soups, sauces, chicken dishes, etc. and harsh Turkish tobaccos.
A strong Tagetes lucida tea is said to produce similar closed-eye-images as Peyote or a very mild state of euphoria and has been used since pre-Hispanic times with many of its properties ascribed to this plant, known as Yauhtli in the Nahuatl language.
